Christopher Woodward, the Director of The Garden Museum, is interviewed in RIBA Friends of Architecture, Autumn 2018 edition. He discusses the recent extension work at The Garden Museum by Dow Jones Architects with gardens by Dan Pearson. We are delighted to have been featured in what is an enlightening and thought provoking article.
