Birmingham Brewpark


My thesis project is the Birmingham Brewpark. Its key aims are to bring agriculture into Birmingham city centre, connecting people to nature through food and drink production in a fun and spectacular way. The highlight of my design being the creation of a reflecting water orchard.
This project helped me explore the tensions between the countryside and city, whilst also furthering my interest in modern landscape design.

Hi! I’m Russ. Growing up in the countryside I spent much of my childhood exploring outside. It was here that I experienced the power of landscapes to help a person to flourish.
Prior to joining the course I was a DJ and area manager running events across the country and managing large teams. I have a passion for music, art, design, travel and the outdoors which led me to embark on a career change, following my passion for outdoor spaces.
I want to create innovative spaces that excite, inspire, and bring people together.
