Garden Museum

The Garden Museum is housed in the deconsecrated parish church of St Mary-at-Lambeth, adjacent to Lambeth Palace on the south bank of the River Thames. Rescued from demolition in 1972 when the tomb of renowned royal gardener and plant hunter John Tradescant was discovered, it was transformed into the world’s first museum dedicated to the history of gardening. As part of the second phase of the museum’s refurbishment Techniker have undertaken timber engineering to create a secondary structure within the building built from cross-laminated timber to double exhibition capacity. Exterior pavilions house archives and a new learning centre cloistered around a courtyard garden designed by Dan Pearson.
