Liz Thomas, Landscape Architect and founding member the Wasteland Collective, Edinburgh
Liz works to elevate the voice, value and agenda of landscape architecture through practice and as a part-time lecturer at the University of Edinburgh. Projects focus on greenspace infrastructure, place-making, and community growing agendas. Liz founded the Wasteland Collective in 2013, the collective has hosted two exhibitions, a pop-up market garden, and supported workshops for young people exploring concepts of Natural Capital. They are currently creating a ‘pop-up practice’ of landscape architects, working with landscape architecture students to prepare and build a temporary learning space for a primary school.
Liz discussed previous projects briefly, and made a call for collaborators on what might come next.
