Landscape Institute awards fellowships

The Landscape Institute has singled out leading lights for their crucial contribution to landscapes.

President Sue Illman used the institute's award ceremony last week to grant honorary fellowships to Forestry Commission chair Pam Warhurst and luminary architect Diane Haigh. She also awarded five fellowships to landscape architects.

"Our awards showcase the best in the profession and landscape architecture at its most inspiring," she told more than 200 people. "We also pay tribute to individuals’ talent, expertise, consideration and contribution to landscape architecture."

Warhurst, said Illman, was "a powerful advocate for landscape and has always striven to promote its relevance to local people; she has consistently highlighted the benefits of landscape to health and wellbeing long before it became national policy."

Diane Haigh is a director of architecture at Cambridge University and a director of award-winning architect Allies and Morrison.

Fellowships went to five people for their contribution to the profession including landscape consultant Peter Neal, Davies White director Adam White and Randall Thorp partner Dick Longdin.

Natural England principal landscape specialist Val Kirby and Environmental Resources Management principal consultant John Flannery also stepped up to receive their fellowships at Congress Centre in London.
