Diana founded her award-winning practice, Armstrong Bell Landscape Design in 1984 and works across the Middle East, Europe and the UK, with a focus on large scale public landscapes.Distinctive designs for urban parks and spaces have won six international design competitions and been shortlisted in a further three. Winning designs include Parco Franco Verga, Milan and Lac de Sénart, France. Diana’s background in art and the inspiration of artists particularly Kazimir Malevich and architect Zaha Hadid, have led to re-imagining the spatial arrangement of new landscapes. Hand drawing, collage and modelling are at the heart of her practice.
Diana’s book Sculpting the Land : Landscape design influenced by abstract art’was published in 2019, when she also exhibited in the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition.
