How are gardens and parks used in workplaces to inspire and support the people who work there? How beneficial are they to corporate identity and profit? Helena Chance will talk about some of the gardens provided by tech companies and will discuss how we can better understand them by looking at the past. Helena will examine the landscapes of some of the British and American corporate giants of the 19th and 20th centuries, the motives behind their making, and the role of design and designers in their success.
