Floral Map Twickenham 2013

The Frame Gardens Festival Commission (2013)

Floral Map by Emily Allchurch and Orleans Park School – Commissioned by Orleans House Gallery

Taking inspiration from 18th century topographical prints of Richmond upon Thames and with the help of Kew Gardens to identify British local plants and flowers with beneficial medicinal properties, Emily Allchurch worked with pupils from Orleans Park School to create a 21st century collaborative ‘map’ of the area; celebrating the rich cultural heritage of the architecture, parks and gardens in the borough.
