PhD funding: Landscape, Infrastructure and Ecology: Scottish Modernist Landscape Architecture through the work of Mark Turnbull. The Manchester School of Architecture

The Landscape Institute Scotland (LIS) and the Manchester School of Architecture (MSA) aim to launch a project that will build on the unique holdings of the LIS Archives and the academic and research experience of MSA.
The project will focus on two until now narrowly researched aspects of Scottish post-war modernist landscape architecture: its international links to the United States of America and its achievements in the field of landscapes of infrastructure and ecological planning. The project will investigate these issues through the lens of the unique archives of architect and landscape architect Mark Turnbull (1943-2016), held by the Landscape Institute Scotland. The research will contribute to the new archives of the Landscape Institute Scotland and their online project Sco.Mo. that documents and disseminates key modernist landscape architectural projects.
The full description of the aims and objectives of the research, the requirements for the candidates, and information on the application process is available here.
Application deadline: 14 January 2019
