PORTFOLIO RUSSELL GREEN


Hi! I’m Russ “I’m currently in my final year studying for a Masters in Landscape Architecture at BCU. Growing up in the countryside I spent much of my childhood exploring outside. It was here that I experienced the power of landscapes to help a person to flourish. Prior to joining the course I was a DJ and area manager running events across the country and managing large teams. I have a passion for music, art, design, travel and the outdoors which led me to embark on a career change, following my passion for outside spaces. I want to create innovative spaces that excite, inspire, and bring people together.”

1 Birmingham Brewpark

My thesis project is the Birmingham Brewpark. Its key aims are to bring agriculture into Birmingham city centre, connecting people to nature through food and drink production in a fun and spectacular way. The highlight of my design being the creation of a reflecting water orchard. This project helped me explore the tensions between the countryside and city, whilst also furthering my interest in modern landscape design.

Nature Play researc

Born To Be Wild

I led this multinational group project in which we designed an outdoors, accessible nature playscape conceived to rewild children, their local area of Tipton, and their community. It will encourage children to engage with the outdoors environment in an active and experiential way, engendering a love of nature that will stay with them for life.
