Emma is driven to create dynamic places for people to use in their day to day lives. The restorative benefits of green spaces to surrounding communities is something Emma explored as part of her masters and values the positive effect it has.
She has since become involved in community initiatives such as the Skip Garden, which brings together the local residents at Kings Cross for gardening sessions. This concludes in a dinner made from the produce grown in the gardens and where participants share the skills they learnt.
Emma is also a keen traveller and has jumped at the opportunities to live, work and explore the world around her. Experiencing other cultures and climates has broadened her design knowledge and shown her new ways to design, this has been documented over the past few years in her shared blogged ’The Secret Garden Atlas’.
