Patches of the Picturesque 
‘Patches of the Picturesque’ is the culmination of architecture, landscape and tele-robotic gardening in search of the perfect landscape in Orford Ness.
A garden for those who don’t own one.
Through a gridded landscape of transponder towers, both virtual gardeners and landscape augmenters will have the opportunity to rent an allotment, and create the picturesque using the latest gardening tool; the mobile device.
Using the downloaded gardening manual, the user will be able to create and augment the landscape. A range of seeds and landscape options are readily available to buy from the app store.
From there, landscape telemanipulators are instructed and begin to augment and tend to the landscape slowly. Land is recycled and new landscapes are created. The architecture is not the focal point, but the tool in which the landscape takes precedence.
‘Patches of the Picturesque’ embodies the idea of global monitoring and the ownership of public spaces from distant places. It also explores how the interactivity between adjacent plots can conflict or concur. With the land protected by the National Trust but at the same time, left for nature to erode, the project aims to not only protect, but to challenge the position of their attitude to preservation, erosion and reuse.
