Kathryn Moore

Birmingham City University / Immediate President of the International Federation of Landscape Architects (IFLA) and Professor

Kathryn Moore, Immediate President of the International Federation of Landscape Architects (IFLA) and Professor of Landscape Architecture at Birmingham City University, has published extensively on design quality, theory, education and practice. Her book “Overlooking the Visual: Demystifying the Art of Design (2010)” provides the basis for critical, artistic discourse. Her teaching, research and practice, set within landscape architecture have clear implications for architecture, planning, urban design and other art and design disciplines, in addition to philosophy, aesthetics and education more generally. It sets the study of landscape at the heart of design of the built environment.

Kathryn is a member of the HS2 Ltd Independent Design Panel and has unrivalled expertise in recognizing the importance of good design in infrastructure projects. HS2LV and her later study, the Tame Valley Landscape Vision, discussed with the Secretary of State for Transport Rt Hon Chris Grayling and the Chair of the Environment Agency, Emma Howard Boyd, are being considered by the Combined Authority in the West Midlands in the context of the long term transformation of the region through the proposal for a West Midlands National Park. This was formally launched at BCU in June 2018 at the major international conference “Landscape and Infrastructure”.
