Peter Kennedy, who graduated with distinction in Landscape Architecture in 2016, won in the "Best Masters Portfolio" category at the prestigious European Council of Landscape Architecture Schools awards at a ceremony in London.

The winning portfolio was based on two major project from his final year at Edinburgh College of Art.

In the first semester of his final year, Peter worked in Krakow in Poland and dealt with an extremely challenging range of issues on the site of a former concentration camp. His aim was to design a place for future generations while simultaneously respecting the location's history. This work was exhibited at Oskar Schindler’s Enamel Factory Museum at Krakus Mound in Krakow. 

In his final sester, he took on a self-directed project in Iceland. Peter’s work there was hugely ambitious and examined an array of climatic, social and environmental themes on a sensitive coastal site. The project questioned the meaning, opportunity and challenge of an ‘Arctic Park’ and how a Landscape Architectural approach may outline proposals that were holistically sustainable.
