State owned industries have had an enormous impact on the UK’s landscape and on UK infrastructure, but the influence of these businesses and their landscape staff has often gone unnoticed and uncelebrated – and there is much to laud and many lessons to learn.

ChairJane Findlay, President Elect, Landscape Institute

Speakers:

Dr Luca Csepely-Knorr & Dr Richard Brook speaking on The Landscapes of Post-War Infrastructure: Culture, Amenity, Heritage and Industry project
