Jade Goto is an RHS Chelsea award winning landscape architect. Her practise, Jade Goto Landscape Studio, was founded in 2010 after a career working for London based Landscape Architectural firms on a variety of prestigious projects, including Candy & Candy’s Soho Square. She has a background and a strong interest in culture and fine art, which feeds into her designs to create inventive and inspiring landscapes. Her practice has recently designed a number of private and public spaces that bring landscape and technology together in new and innovative ways. As a designer Jade uses her broad and extensive knowledge base to combine Landscape Architecture, Horticulture, Technology, Ecology and Art.
In 2012 we collaborated with Jade to help create her QR (Quick Response) Code Garden design for Chelsea Flower Show, a design that grabbed the public and media’s attention around the world due to the cutting edge combination of technology, design and horticulture. The QR Code idea originally came from an idea of sharing information quickly and easily as visitors walked round Chelsea Flower Show. This was the first year that smart technology had been utilised at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show and The QR Code Garden was a topical, ambitious and interactive space that delivered a bold visual statement. The main focal point of the garden was a large QR code wall, created with vertical planting, which could be scanned by visitor’s smart phones to instantly access more information about the garden. The design referenced formal garden traditions through the use of sharp geometric form and clipped topiary, but was brought into the present day through the engagement with this contemporary way of accessing virtual information.
Treebox work very closely with Jade on both design work and visualisations. As well as working on some fantastic green wall projects together we also have several exciting collaborative design projects underway. Treebox enjoys working with Jade and find her enthusiasm for design and landscape refreshing. Jades professional proactive approach compliments her creative and innovative designs.
