Willemijn van Manen (1989) is a landscape architect at OKRA. Designing on different scales and levels is one of her strong suits. Having both a Masters in landscape architecture and a bachelor in the arts, she knows how to combine hard core landscape architecture and artistry. This balance between intuition and ratio is one of her trademarks. Willemijn can provide structure in projects where needed but also seizes her change when there is an opportunity for artistic freedom, and make projects that change ones perspective. Willemijn likes to work in a multidisciplinary, where she can reflect on her ideas with her team.
Willemijn studied Urban Design at the HKU Utrecht University of the Arts and she is a graduate of the Amsterdam Academy of Architecture, department of Landscape Architecture, where she is now a guest teacher.
