Two practitioners and an academic strengthen team

Three new members join editorial advisory panel

Three new members have joined the editorial advisory panel (EAP) of Landscape, which meets quarterly to provide ideas and advice on the content and presentation of the quarterly journal and also of news on the LI website. They are David Buck, Joe Clancy and Peter Sheard.

Dr David Buck is a landscape architect and educator based in the north Cotswolds. He founded the landscape architecture programme at the University of East London and his design work in the UK and Japan has been widely published. His PhD at UCL focused on investigating alternatives to perspectival representations of space in landscape architecture through developing new notations from a synthesis with music. He has written extensively on a range of design topics, most recently with Fumihiko Maki on 'The Design of Place'.

Joe Clancy is a landscape architect at Pegasus Planning Group, based in Birmingham.  He is also an internationally published architectural journalist and an emerging expert on biophilic design.  In 2014, while working at Terrapin Bright Green, he co-authored 14 Patterns of Biophilic Design: Improving Health and Well-Being in the Built Environment.

Peter Sheard is based in London as freelance landscape architect, designer and writer, having worked for 30 years in three of the world's largest private practices (BDP, SOM and Gensler). His experience has been focused, by choice, on master plans and strategic conceptual thinking along with planners, architects and engineers for sites at the beginning of the design process, thereby ensuring that the first major moves are decided by a landscape architect with the site's qualities foremost in mind. Projects are based around the UK and Europe, including hospitality projects, gardens, urban rehabilitation studies and master plans. He writes articles for the professional press and enjoys contributing to tutorials and crits at the London Met and Central Saint Martins.
