Sebastien Marot first studied philosophy before gradually getting involved in the theory of architecture, urbanism and landscape. Since 1986 he has served as general delegate of the Societe Francaise des Architectes (SFA) in Paris where he has been organizing annual series of lectures focused on the history and practice of architecture, urban design and landscape architecture, and on their most contemporary developments. Since 1995 he has also served as chief editor of Le Visiteur, an architecture and landscape magazine which he founded at the SFA. His personal research concerns the relationship between landscape architecture and urban design. He currently teaches at the Ecole d'architecture, de la ville et des territoires in Marne-La-Vallee (Paris), the Institut d'architecture de l'universite de Geneve and the Graduate School of the Architectural Association in London.
