Ben Smith
BA (Hons) BLA, CMLI

Ben is a chartered landscape architect taking a lead design role Southwark Park, Old Nursery Site and Walthamstow Wetlands.

He was project landscape architect for Drapers Field, a strategically important project on the Olympic fringe that provides natural play, sports and leisure facilities for both the existing east London community and the emerging communities of the Athletes’ Village.

Ben was also lead landscape architect for the award winning Burntwood School in Wandsworth, London. This design has retained the existing mature trees and modernist layout and style of the existing school, with a strong visual framework of unusual trees and simple planar spaces to aid legibility and the creation of a sense of place.

Ben has excellent design, graphic and communication skills which have allowed him to work constructively with clients, stakeholders and manufacturers to realise imaginative and appropriate solutions. Ben is also a specialist in play and has led the play strategy on both Drapers Field and Marsh Lane.
