MediaCityUK joins a great line-up for the 2017 Landscape Institute Conference – Landscape as Infrastructure

Gillespies and developer Peel will host an exclusive tour of MediaCityUK’s public spaces on Friday 23rd June at 10am, as part of the  2017 Landscape Institute Conference. This year’s conference explores Landscape as Infrastructure.  

Join them in exploring how this project has reinvented acres of derelict dockland on the banks of the Manchester Ship Canal into a thriving hub of events and creative activity. 

Gillespies partner and project landscape architect Jim Gibson and MediaCityUK’s Director of Communication Paul Newman will explore the challenges encountered during the project and outline how the public realm has successfully delivered a series of modern urban spaces that combine contemporary, practical usage with iconic heritage.

There are also opportunities to explore our landscape design at the Salford University’s Peel Park Campus on Friday 23rd at 9am
