LAA Profile: LandLAB's Henry Crothers
We continue our series of profile videos by showcasing a man who's name has become synonymous with urban renewal in New Zealand. LandLAB Director Henry Crothers is a force to be reckoned with in the world of landscape architecture and urban design. He's the chair of the Auckland Branch of the NZILA as well as sitting in the NZILA executive committee and won wide praise for his role as convener of the 2018 NZILA Firth conference. Henry also chairs the Tāmaki Makaurau Design Alliance (TMDA)
Henry has been involved in some of the most significant urban renewal and public transformation projects in New Zealand including the Auckland City Centre streetscapes and 'shared space' program, master planning and delivery of projects for Panuku Development Auckland and the Avon River Park Precinct, East Frame and South Frame in Christchurch. We can't leave out his involvement in the pink light path in Auckland either.
Henry says design is about people and has to be led by people. In the video below he tells us what drives him and explains how he believes the role of a landscape architect is changing.
