TCL welcomes new director Lisa Howard

January 2018

TCL (Taylor Cullity Lethlean) welcomes Lisa Howard as its fifth director, joining Kate Cullity, Perry Lethlean, Scott Adams and Damian Schultz on the leadership team of Australia’s most internationally renowned landscape architecture practice.

At just 36 years of age, Lisa is set to become the youngest female practice director currently working in the Australian landscape architecture industry (excluding sole operators and partnerships).

Lisa first joined TCL in 2004 as a graduate landscape architect after completing her studies at RMIT University.

In her fourteen years at the practice Lisa has delivered numerous large-scale open space projects for a range of clients, collaborated with leading architects, designers and artists, and participated in respected industry conferences, workshops and events.

Over the past five years Lisa has worked with leading universities, including La Trobe, Monash and RMIT, to design and deliver progressive strategies to reinvigorate campus life for students, staff and visitors.

Her expertise is reflected in the innovative designs of the Northern Plaza, Eastern Residential Precinct and Forum at Monash University; Riverbank Pedestrian Bridge in Adelaide; and the Australian Pavilion at the Shanghai 2010 Expo, China. In 2017 Lisa was a finalist in the Women’s Agenda Emerging Leaders Awards.

“I’m really honoured to be appointed a director,” said Lisa. “I look forward to building upon the incredible legacy forged by TCL’s founding directors and maintaining the practice’s reputation into the future.”

TCL founding director Kate Cullity said that Lisa has been an integral part of TCL for many years and her skills, creativity and dedication are seminal to the practice's future. 

Lisa and Kate will lead a workshop titled “The Art of Collaborating” at the 2018 Australian Landscape Conference to be held in Melbourne in March.
