As a landscape architect, my role involves working in multidisciplinary teams and with stakeholders to create meaningful places. In practice I aim for contribution to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in particular sustainable harmony with life on Earth.
My particular areas of interest are in modern landscape architecture approach, blending a strong research base and artist sensibility into ecology led design, or nature based landscape architecture.
Principles and interests I have developed:
- Full understanding/recognition of site, before design. This is achieved through strength of research and analysis, visiting the site and being present.
- Collaborative people centred approach towards resilience building, which is now acknowledged as critical in facing some of the critical challenges of our humanities time, posed by urbanisation, globalisation, climate change, soil, water and ecosystem degradation.
- Art as activator. Actor participation and co-creation.
