Keynote speaker – Landscape Australia Conference 2017
Andy Hamilton has been involved with the landscape profession from an early age, working as a gardener, a nurseryman and a landscape contractor before completing a degree in landscape architecture at Unitec Institute of Technology, New Zealand. He began practising as a landscape architect in 2003, working with an Auckland-based urban design firm designing public parks and urban centres, before moving to London in 2005. Andy was based in the UK for eleven years, during which he spent ten years as an associate at Tom Stuart-Smith, running a mix of public and private projects in the UK, France, Spain, India, Morocco and the Caribbean. In January 2015 he returned to New Zealand to set up his own landscape design practice – Andy Hamilton Studio. The studio works on a range of projects in both rural and urban contexts. Andy has a particular interest in planting design.
