In November 2013, the Landscape Institute Awards ceremony in London announced the award of a Gold Medal to LINI member Robert Carson, acknowledging his importance to the profession in Northern Ireland, Ireland, UK and further afield. Unfortunately, Robert was unwell at the time, and unable to receive his award. A special ceremony for the award of the Gold Medal to Robert Carson by Noel Farrar, incoming President of the Landscape Institute, celebrating Robert’s landscape architectural work and practice, will take place on 29 May 2014 at the Barge in Belfast alongside the LINI AGM. We hope that you will attend, to meet Robert and show your support for this prestigious award. LI and LINI have coordinated a joint a ceremony in Northern Ireland. This probably under events also.
