I am an English Landscape Architect based in Basel, Switzerland. I grew up in the YorkshireDales National Park and my work continues to be influenced by time spent exploring that landscape. I design by walking, thinking and making. Working in collaboration with individuals and teams, I plan and implement objects, places and transformation processes of landscape and the public realm. I am interested in the complexity of our manmade natural environments, and the ways in which art and design processes can challenge and influence their inherent growth, decay and change to rediscover or redefine coherent identities and structures. Hand drawing and model-making are integral to my working methods. The time invested in handwork opens one up to intuitive understanding of relationships between structure, space, material, process, time and experience. These proven methods help to build integrity within the design process, which is essential for any project that aims to synthesise practical and ecological concerns with sensitivity for our human stories. More often than not, a vivid and abiding sense of wellbeing is provoked in those places where nature and human nature are experienced as complimentary.
