Rehousing Fairbourne


My thesis project focused on developing solutions for the climate change refugees at Fairbourne. The project would provide a holistic answer, creatively rehousing the population, and developing an exciting coastal walkway that would bring more tourism to the area, celebrating Wales and provide a platform for education about climate issues. The project allowed me to continue to develop visual skills and research and plot potential future sea levels based on different sea level prediction scenarios.

My name is James Hunter. I have a passion for landscape architecture, and this has been inspired by travel and studying environmental science. I have 5 years of experience in a broad range of environmental consultancy areas and 3 years solely of Landscape Architecture.
My principal role is providing support on Landscape and Visual Impact Assessments (LVIAs), landscape character assessments, landscape sensitivity and capacity assessments, design support, desktop and site baseline research, drafting associated reports, GIS outputs and undertaking field work including photography to Landscape Institute guidelines. I have contributed to a wide range of projects including, residential developments, wind farms, waste processing plants and airport developments. University projects have developed my creative flair, and I look forward to bringing this to design projects in the future.
