Thanks to the evolution of 3D printing, leading garden designers and landscape architects have been able to create their unique gardens in miniature 3D format, giving them innovation and practicality in their designs. These ‘mini’ gardens show the brightest ideas of today’s landscape architects, allowing a larger accessibility for all garden lovers.

Sarah Eberle, Adam Frost and Jo Thompson, three of the RHS Chelsea Flower Show ‘Best in Show’ winners, are among the 10 leading garden designers, you will be guaranteed a magical experience about gardens which are made entirely through 3D printing. Having London College of Garden Design and Hobs3D as their main sponsors, there will be live 3D printing in one of our gallery rooms to demonstrate the concept of 3D printing.

The show is beautifully curated by Andrew Fisher Tomlin and Tom Harfleet, along with landscape designer Kajsa Björne. The team previously worked together in Australia, where they discovered their mutual interest in the power of gardens. All three have worked internationally across a wide range of projects. The show is free and open to everyone who is interested to see how 3D printing takes over and how such small, high-quality, detailed 3D models have a big meaning in the world of art and design.

miNiATURE gives a group of leading UK and International designers a chance to design completely new ideas in gardens and landscapes, introducing 3D printing to landscape design and the public with the world’s first model garden show.

The concept behind miNiATURE is to create a platform where designers truly have the ability to create unique and ambitious gardens, even if they are in miniature. Currently show gardens provide a platform to engage people with new design but often these can end up as safe and self-limiting due to budget and in order to win a medal. miNiATURE aims to change this by giving designers an outlet to explore creative designs at low cost through modelling. Up until recently this took place ‘on screen’ and a physical model could take time and expense but now with the advent of 3D printing we have the ability to produce high quality, detailed and accurate 3D models to communicate ideas and engage directly with clients.
