In Memoriam: Iain Robertson, ASLA

Associate Professor Emeritus, Iain Robertson, ASLA, passed away on July 27, 2021, at the age of 73. Iain Robertson inspired generations of University of Washington (UW) landscape architects and students with his love for and commitment to the natural world. Throughout his more than 40-year career in practice and at the University of Washington, Iain was a mentor and friend to so many of us in the community.

Iain received his Bachelor of Architecture from the University of Edinburgh in 1972 and went on to get his Master of Landscape Architecture in 1975 from the University of Pennsylvania.

After working at Jones and Jones, he joined the Department of Landscape Architecture at the University of Washington in 1982 and served as Department Chair from 1996 to 2004.
