Job Role: Graduate Landscape Architect
About: Samantha recently graduated with a BA(Hons) in Landscape Architecture and Design from Leeds Beckett University, where most of her work focused on the importance of post-industrial landscapes. She has joined DLA as part of her ‘Year Out’ and hopes to gain a variety of new skills in design.
Favourite Design / Building:
A park located in Duisburg-Meiderich in Germany which was designed by Latz + Partner in 1991. The design comprises of a 180-hectare post-industrial steelworks site which has been designed with the intention to preserve its industrial past, rather than trying to reject it. It’s a great example of how post-industrial landscape architecture can have such a positive effect on the surrounding community, as well as the landscape itself.
