Picturing a Net Zero Landscape – understanding and reducing landscape carbon in the city of Bath

As we move towards a Net Zero world the way we design and manage our landscapes and cityscapes will need to change. We will need to use materials created with no or limited greenhouse gas emissions, and find innovative ways to remove carbon from the atmosphere. 

Using iconic views of the city as case studies, landscape architect and author Claire Thirlwall will explore how the landscape of Bath could be part of this transformation, including lessons from traditional building techniques and how removing atmospheric carbon isn’t just about planting trees. 

 As Director of landscape practice Thirlwall Associates Claire has been involved in the design, planning and implementation of a wide range of landscape projects for almost 30 years. She has worked as an Expert Adviser to the National Lottery Heritage Fund since 2005 and writes extensively on landscape architecture and sustainability. Her book “From Idea to Site: a project guide to creating better landscapes” was published by RIBA Publishing in 2020.


Doors open at 5.30 for 6pm start

The Museum of Bath Architecture is housed in the Countess of Huntingdon’s Chapel, the Paragon Bath BA1 2LR

There will be an opportunity for ticket holders to explore the museum before and after the talk.

A bar will be available serving wine, beer and soft drinks.



The entrance, and main museum room which houses the museum’s permanent collection and changing exhibitions are all level access. There are three steps up to the ‘Countess’ Room’ which explains the history of Selina, Countess of Huntingdon, for whom the chapel was built and three steps up to the back of the scale model of Bath. Assistance dogs are welcome. Unfortunately, the museum toilets are located up three steps and then down a flight of stairs.
