Trentham Gardens Silver Medal Winner
A Silver Medal was also awarded to The Trentham Estate for Clive Mollart's design, 'A Sound Garden'. Taking an innovative approach to garden sound installation, not only does the planting create gentle sound as it moves, but hidden within the garden are electronic sensors that add another dimension, allowing visitors to interact with an evolving sound engine. The sound produced is directly influenced and created by the way in which the user moves, providing an interactive, therapeutic and sensory garden.
Silva Timber supplied Western Red Cedar trim boards, used in the garden for horizontal slatted screens as an enclosure and backdrop for the beautiful surroundings.
The Sound Garden is to be rebuilt in the Trentham Garden Estate for visitors to enjoy for time to come.
