Roeland has been working at OKRA since 2017. He is interested in the relationship between cities’ the city’ and her hinterland, ‘the landscape’. Due to the strong population growth, this mutual relationship has changed radically in the past century. In his view, future urbanization is, therefore, a challenging and inspiring task. As a designer, he is convinced that this assignment not only takes place in the city but also demands a new perspective on our landscape. How will we design the landscape in the coming 10, 20 or 50 years so that inspiring usage spaces are created?
Roeland graduated cum laude from the Van Hall Larenstein University of Applied Sciences. In 2019, he will graduate from the master’s programme in landscape architecture at the Academy of Architecture in Amsterdam.
