The University of Birmingham’s Edgbaston campus provides the site for a major public realm installation – the ‘Green Heart’ project.

Established around the historic axis of Joseph Chamberlain’s clock tower and Aston Webb’s range of academic buildings, Churchman’s vision for the Green Heart provides a new model for all higher education landscapes.

The design promotes the positive use of external academic space; establishing the landscape as the talking point of campus, facilitating discourse, occupation and random encounter; providing a seedbed where students and academics trade ideas and inspiration. This is focused around fully inclusive movement features a bridge, glass pavilions a biologically filtered water feature and rain gardens.

Starting on site in summer 2017 the main phase of the project will be completed in 2018.
