The most celebrated landscape architect of the Edwardian era, Thomas Hayton Mawson (1861-1933) was renowned for the creation of landscapes that utilised his architectural and horticultural skills and emphasized a strong association between built form and the immediate landscape.
From his offices in Lancaster and Windermere he was a leading practitioner of the emerging profession of Landscape Architecture and he became well known for garden, park and civic space commissions throughout the UK. He is now widely recognized as the leading landscape architect of his time. Although less well known for his works abroad, his international reputation was established from the beginning of the twentieth century by the completion of commissions in America, Canada and Europe including the prestigious garden of the Palace of Peace in The Hague.
