The UK Landscape Institute election, in May 2021, is a good opportunity to think about the future of the landscape profession, the art of landscape architecture and the UK Landscape Foundation. The LI dates from 1929 and the LF from 1992. Sir Geoffrey Jellicoe was right that both are needed. As well having a major role in shaping the LI, Jellicoe established the International Federation of Landscape Architects and the UK Landscape Foundation. In my view, the LI should concentrate on the administrative aspects of landscape architecture and the LF on the imaginative and developmental aspects of what Jellicoe believed to be 'the most comprehensive of the arts': Landscape Architecture. It needs more voices.
