With over 10 years of experience in the industry, Chris Tidswell has been appointed to the role of senior associate at Arcadia Landscape Architecture.

"We anticipate that Arcadia's design philosophy will be an ideal fit with Chris's holistic approach to creation of the public domain," says Arcadia principal Alex Longley.

"At Arcadia we take a collaborative approach to all our work and we're all excited about the chance to share Chris' experience, gained working on so many significant public domain projects. His extensive design, project management and contract administration skills as well as sophisticated graphic abilities, will be a great benefit to our studio," says Longley.

"What I most enjoy about working on public domain projects is the contribution to the community," says Tidswell. 

"I'm excited about taking on the challenge to help the Arcadia team build on their current body of work. I look forward to sharing my approach which is always specific to the site, drawing the principles for design from the site context, climate, ecology and people's use of the spaces," he says.
