Dezeen: Green Shoots

Recent News

February 2019

Dezeen features the Cambodian Agriculture & Technology Centre that was designed by Squire & Partners for Green Shoots Foundatio, in collaboration with SAWA. Partner Tim Gledstone is quoted in the piece: "It's important with every project we undertake – whether in the UK or Cambodia – that our designs create something appropriate to context."

"The building we delivered has tapped into available resources and skills, using local materials such as earth, rice husk and cassava render alongside collaborations with local metalworkers and weavers."

"In my view the best architecture comes where each material is allowed to do its job, along with an attention to detail and commitment to joy. If you follow these rules, the quality will follow."
