Eric Hallquist is the Director of Landscape Architecture team at Allies and Morrison. He has a particular focus on the design of public realm. Great cities, he argues, are defined by the quality of their open spaces. Public realm should not only be beautiful and memorable but should be integral to tackling environmental issues such as air quality, water management and carbon sequestration. Eric is based in London but has nurtured a diverse, international portfolio of landscape and public realm projects.
