He graduated with a Bachelor of Landscape Architecture and a Master of Landscape Architecture (by research) from the University of Pretoria. His masters degree focussed on teaching in landscape architecture.
Clinton taught landscape architecture and architecture at the University of Pretoria where he ran the second year combined design studio for a number of years before taking up his current position.
His research interests lie in developing the theoretical foundations of the discipline of landscape architecture. He is currently working on his PhD, entitled; “The application of an organisational framework to the body of theory in landscape architecture for improved critical engagement.” The study focuses on landscape architectural theory and the links to broader cultural tides, critique, design process and built work. The proposal is to develop an organisational framework to facilitate critical engagement with theory in landscape architecture and its intellectual history in the areas of design and critique.
