Shelley Long

Team Leader, Landscape Architect

Applying West 8’s systemic approach and design research to create meaningful, ecological, and iconic urban landscapes, Shelley Long oversees a range of public space and landscape-led infrastructure projects in Canada, the UK, and the Netherlands. She leads the design of new inclusive parks, plazas, and waterfronts as well as a number of long term legacy projects at West 8. An experienced Landscape Architect in both professional and academic settings, Shelley brings her expertise in project and team management, creating concept narratives, and client communication.

Shelley’s cross-cultural and organizational skills allow her to navigate the waters of complex international projects from within the Rotterdam office. Prior to joining West 8 in 2018, she worked as a landscape architect and adjunct professor in Vancouver, Canada. Shelley is passionate about landscape: how it mediates and creates nature, and how it generates identity.
