B. Landscape Architecture, MArch, PhD (Planning)
With a background in a broad spectrum of design - Landscape Architecture, Architecture and Planning - and serving as Dean of a design faculty with a multi-disciplinary profile, I am dedicated to a collaborative perspective in my teaching and research, and in others I supervise and lead. My own research focuses on the history of landscape as it is manifest in urban reform, landscape design and heritage conservation. I am currently writing a book on the Olmsted Firm in Canada, and I serve as an Expert Advisor to the International Council on Monuments and Site as a Cultural Landscape specialist. Most recently saw my involvement in a panel advising to the Japanese government on the nomination of Mt. Fuji as a World Heritage Site.
In the contemporary environment I am most interested in urban design that can lead to the careful management of water resources - a concern that was underscored by my last few years spent in the driest city, in the driest state, in the driest continent in the world - the City of Adelaide, South Australia. This is a concern that has yet to come to the fore, with as much urgency, in many North American environments but the lessons are there for all communities that are concerned about the security of their water quality and quantity.
