Nature has played a huge part in architecture throughout history and has shaped the form of buildings since prehistoric times to the modern day. Buildings often mirror the structure of the natural world and are sometimes decorated to resemble the beauty of it too.
If we look closely we can see the hidden nature in the architecture in our towns and villages all over the borough of Dacorum.
You’ll be able to rediscover the hidden nature in the built heritage of Dacorum through the art of photography, seeking out nature inspired designs all around you. These could be decorative details or whole buildings, including our schools, workplaces, homes, shops and community spaces.
