Ian White Hon FRIAS

We were delighted to see the RIAS award Ian White landscape architect an Honorary Fellowship of the Institute. As the citation read, Ian has made a huge contribution to Scottish Landscape design but in particular also to the work of our practice. It was under Ian's guidance and mentorship that many of our projects have evolved from the first early collaborative project at Glasgow Cathedral Square. His use of powerful lines of tree planting and hedging in the grand manner stamped simple and clear frameworks on each setting. The acknowledgement of the RIAS is also a recognition of that distinctive legacy.
