Andrew Grant

Andrew Grant, founder and director of Bath-based Grant Associates has recently been recognised for his pioneering global work in sustainable and ecological landscape architecture by becoming a Royal Designer for Industry (RDI).

The distinction of RDI was established by the RSA in 1936 to enhance the status of designers in industry and is widely recognised as the highest accolade for designers in the UK.

Only 200 designers are able to hold the distinction at any one time and other current holders include Terence Conran, Jonathan Ive, James Dyson, Vivienne Westwood and Thomas Heatherwick.

Grant Associates has recently won the World Building of the Year 2012 at the World Architecture Festival.
