School Staff

Our highly-skilled team of SoLA staff members are dedicated to achieving excellence in design and research.

In 1969, when Lincoln University (then Lincoln College) established New Zealand’s first professional qualification in landscape architecture, there were only two staff members, with Charlie Challenger as the head of the department. Today, we have a staff of 11 from around the world, including Canada, Germany and Brazil.
