I am a graduate architect and creative professional with a specialization in landscape urbanism. I graduated with a Master of Architecture (cand.arch) from kunstakadamiets arkitektskole in Copenhagen in 2011 and a Bachelor of Environmental Design (B.EDs) from Dalhousie University in Halifax in 2009.
Currently I'm a designer at Public Work, a landscape architecture and urban design firm in Toronto, Canada. We work on projects in the public realm including parks, civic spaces, and city infrastructure.
Previously I worked as an architect for Sinai - an urban design + landscape firm in Berlin. Even more previously, I created freelance visualizations for Nieto Sobejano Arquitectos and interned at Tekton Arkitekten in Amsterdam.
WHAT IS SYNTHETICA?
Synthetica is about the creative process of combination that occurs between context and concept. A good result is dependent on the careful balance between what is there and what could be. I believe that big ideas and strong visions are required to direct the focus of smaller, community based interventions.
I am interested in the relationship between landscape, infrastructure and public space, and how these are essential to context-driven architecture. I am passionate about building positive, natural connections in urban settings.
Synthetica describes a design approach that is conscious of the intricacies of context and builds on what already exists. In this way layers of meaning gradually add up to create a vibrant and characteristic environment.
