Personal profile

Current Research Interests

Investigating the interrelationships between art, architecture, landscape and place to frame new insights in Landscape Architectural practice

Landscape Architecture by its very nature is a practice that relies on strong inter-disciplinary teaching, practice and research in order to respond to the challenges of climate change and the associated demand for sustainable solutions to development. My aim is and has been to promote Landscape Architecture as a discipline concerned with creative and sustainable design for the whole human environment. 

I was commissioned to author and implement The Public Realm – Public Art strategy for Inverness Campus and as a consequence I have been engaged to design an external gallery in the heart of the Campus Landscape.  This single commission entitled An t-Eilean (The Island) has allowed me to merge and distil my many research interests and translate my investigative priorities into the fabric of a public space for experimentation and engaged action.
