The annual study tour has become the flagship event in the Harrison Steven’s extra-carricular calendar. It brings together a culmination of the knowledge acquired in our monthly CPDs and curiosity in our day-to-day practice and allows us to apply it to some of the most-well renown, and possibly less well known landscape projects in the different corners of the world. This year we were delighted to head down to London to visit a selection of some of the inspiring landscape designs that the city has to offer.
What if 25% of a site has restricted access due to planning requirements? HarrisonStevens’ answer is to make the project a showcase of Blue-Green Infrastructure, Biodiversity Net Gain and Nature Base Solutions. There is no disadvantaged site, only a site with vast and unique opportunities.
My name is Tom Stephenson; I am from Whitley Bay in northeast England and have recently become a landscape architect. I graduated in Fine Art at Duncan Of Jordanstone College of Art in Dundee in 2016, working predominantly in contemporary sculpture. Shortly after graduation, I moved to the North-West Highlands of Scotland after a lifetime of family holidays there. I worked as a gardener and estate manager for a luxury hotel. Following my time in the highlands, I decided to join the Master of Landscape Architecture at Edinburgh College of Art.
