The first ever exhibition of 3D printed gardens, miNiATURE will go on display at The Strand Gallery, central London from 6 to 8 March.

Designers from the UK, Australia and South Korea are all booked to show their creations. Thanks to the evolution of 3D printing, leading garden designers and landscape architects have been able to realise their visions of their unique gardens in miniature 3D format.

miNiATURE has been created by Kajsa Björne, Andrew Fisher Tomlin and Tom Harfleet. The three award winning designers first worked together during the Australia Garden Show Sydney in 2013. During that show they spent hours throwing ideas around, many of them quickly discarded, but one stuck - the idea of using 3D printing to produce miniature gardens.

The aim of miNiATURE is to enable designers to move away from designs that have limitations such as restricted budgets, planting season or focus on awards and to instead give the opportunity to experiment and explore innovative designs through the media of 3D printing along with traditional modelling. The high quality, detailed and accurate 3D models allow designers to communicate ideas and engage directly with clients.

miNiATURE has invited 10 of the industry's leading designers to design a garden that have been printed in a scale of 1:50. The gardens are made entirely through 3D printing/ They were designed in Vectorworks Landmark software and then 3D printed by Hobs 3D, providers of 3D printing services to the architectural and landscape design profession.

Sarah Eberle, Adam Frost and Jo Thompson, three of the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 'Best in Show' winners, are among the 10 leading garden designers.

The show is free and open to everyone who is interested to see how 3D printing takes over and how such small, high-quality, detailed 3D models have a big meaning in the world of art and design. There will also be live 3D printing in one of the gallery rooms to demonstrate the concept of 3D printing.
