Reflections Series: ‘Then and Now’

The difference between graduating as a landscape architect in the late 20th century and in the early 21st century is only 30-40 years however the changes that have occurred in in that timeframe have been enormous.

We will hear from four practitioners, each at a different stage in their career, some with experience of working or learning abroad, and reflecting on the changes and challenges that they have experienced in their working life since graduating.

  • Rebecca Heatlie -CH2M
  • Anca Panait – AHR
  • Liane Bauer – Urban Pioneers
  • Janet Benton – Benton Scott-Simmons

The AGM is also the launch of the Mark Turnbull Travel Award
