Edward Scobie

Project Consultant

I completed my master’s in Landscape Architecture at the University of Greenwich where I explored the contentious – and very topical – issue of Privately Owned Public Spaces (POPS) across London. I am currently working on a large redevelopment project in Portsmouth.

Before becoming a landscape architect, I studied History of Art, focusing on the Minimalists and 19th Century satirical illustrations. I wrote my dissertation on Cruikshank’s original illustrations of Oliver Twist.

I love running and cycling. Cycling from London to Rome a few years ago was an amazing experience.

Q&A


The last book I read was …

The Worst Journey in the World, Apsley Cherry-Garrard, an amazingly honest tale of the infamous, epic and fateful journey to the South Pole.

As a Landscape Architect, who has inspired you?

Richard Serra, the minimalist sculptor. His approach to sculpture is such a close reaction to the surrounding landscape, the sculptures exist alongside the landscape rather than on or in it.

What is the most memorable thing you’ve ever seen in a public space?

Bridge jumpers in Mostar, Bosnia.
