Revealed: winner of Canterbury Cathedral entrance contest

From Canterbury-

Landscape architect Hyland Edgar Driver has won the competition to revamp the landscaping around Canterbury Cathedral

The jury was unanimous in choosing the London and Winchester-based practice, which beat off competition from teams including Gianni Botsford Architects, Purcell, Tonkin Liu and up-and-coming practice Michael Lee Architects.

Inspired by the cathedral’s archives and glass art, Hyland Edgar Driver’s proposals suggested developing a pavement of large flagstones forming a new piazza, alongside restoring flint walls and reintroducing herbs and wild flowers.
