Kim collaborates with architects and landscape architects around the world and combines designing with the muddy practicalities of running a small farm in Hampshire, where he is now based.

Kim studied history at Oxford and landscape architecture at the University of California, Berkeley, before setting up his landscape studio in London in 1989. He continues to teach and lecture in America; writes optimistically about land and place from Hampshire; and meddles in various national committees on landscape and environmental policy in the UK.

Current projects include the redesign of the grounds of the Natural History Museum in London, landscape advice for the Grange and Aldeburgh Music Festivals in Hampshire and Suffolk and plans for a series of estates in Ireland and the United Kingdom, combining landscape design with sustainable farming. Abroad Kim is working for New York University at Villa La Pietra in Florence, on the revival of the montado landscape in Portugal and on the creation of a new city near Muscat in Oman.
