Dawn’s educational and work experience crosses the disciplines of landscape architecture, architecture, product design and garden design.

She has been involved with projects ranging from restoration of domestic listed building in the UK, large-scale landscape developments in the Middle East, private garden design in the UK and product design and prototyping in Singapore.

Her research interests include reflective practice and design pedagogy, place attachment, and representation techniques in landscape architecture. This is reflected in her experience as a lecturer in landscape architecture and garden design at Writtle University College, lecturer and acting programme leader at Birmingham Institute of Fashion and Creative Art (BIFCA) and her current role as lecturer in landscape architecture and level 5 leader at Birmingham City University.

Dawn is an advocate for interdisciplinary project work and enjoys the challenge of integrating theoretical research with practical studio-based work.
