An interesting visual exploration of space in this competition entry. I’m interested in what readers think about the success of this story/illustration (with a book illustrator) in telling this particular tale. Personally, aside from the plan graphic, I’m not feeling it and find it distracting from the overall concept, but that’s the beauty of expression – it’s all in the interpretation.

An excerpt: “The landscape doesn’t profess to be a slice of natural countryside but grows out from the urban fabric taking in rationalized traffic and accommodating level changes and desire lines, all the while delicately framing views of Blackburn landmarks side by side with new follies. We designed the landscape by exploring the adventure of a boy who finds a mirror on the floor of the shopping centre. The mirror is based on the “Claude Glass,” an 18th century pocket mirror used by artists and tourists to capture picturesque views. In the mirror, the boy sees a secret landscape garden where the trees are enjoying their own versions of various playground games.”
