The LDA Design principal landscape architect on Katy Perry, scaffolding boards, and forgetting to log out of Facebook

Ben Walker

What is your favourite website?

What is your worst digital habit?

Forgetting to log out of my facebook account around other people which leads to awkward wall posts.

iPhone/Blackberry/Android. Which side are you on?

iPhone, but I am more than happy to wheel out a vintage Eriksson when working with Architects for that ‘too cool’ persona.

Are you into social networking? (Linkedin, Twitter, Facebook etc)

I try to keep abreast of social networking trends and believe they all have their own merits, in particular public consultation which enables a far more honest response than face to face discussions.

If you are on Twitter, who do you recommend to follow?

I am not entirely sure how to use twitter but Katy Perry must be putting out ground breaking stuff, surely 47m people can’t be wrong.

What is your favourite app?

Sky Go for when I am sitting at home too lazy to turn on the TV.

What is your preferred means of communication?


What did you last buy online?

A set of three 1800mm scaffolding boards.

PC or Mac?

Mac for the free stickers.

Guilty pleasures: most played tunes from iTunes/Spotify?

Simply Red – The Greatest Hits.
