Design Statement_ My design philosophy is simple; I believe in designing places for people. I believe that good design is based on people and their needs; the need to feel safe, to meet with other people and to interact with the landscape. A landscape Architect should consider the needs of the place and it’s users before considering the architect’s own ambitions and tastes. Good design is also about creating a place where people feel an immediate sense of belonging and of curiosity, a place which invites people in. True to my Scandinavian sensibilities I have a strong belief that encouraging outdoor activities and experiencing nature is key to giving people a genuine understanding of, and desire to work towards sustainability. Social sustainability is not achieved through a landscape which no one uses. Environmental sustainability through landscape design means that we minimise any interventions, adapting our design and our needs to the ecosystem in place. Profile_

I am passionate about what I do! I work hard, but I also make a good cup of tea for my colleagues when they need it.

Einar Granum Drawing Project

While studying at Einar Granum Art School, we were given a project in drawing. We chose the topic ourselves, focusing on developing a series of drawings which explored different aspects of ourselves. This series of drawings looks at the easters I spent with my family at my grandmotherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s house in Charsadda, Pakistan, and how the memories of them have blurred over time.

Einar Granum Screen Print Project

Screen Print classat Einar Granum was one of my favourites, as it allows a series of different images to produced within a very short space of time. These prints are partly the result of this class and of my final project. I chose to look at women in iconic movies and how they represented women of their time in completely different ways in America and Asia. Yasmin Maria Khan

University of Life Sciences, East Oslo Transect

The final assignment of my first year as a Landscape Architecture student was to work with a transect of Osloâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s East-End. The class was given a transect, which we then explored individually to find a concept which could run through the entire site and be applied in different ways. We then chose a detail site to apply our concept. I worked with the transect to identify a pedestrian/cycle route which explored both the hotspots in the area, and the less known sites. The route trawled through a series of very distinct neighbourhoods, allowing a series of highly individual, yet well connected sites to appear. Places which already had a very strong indentity kep their character features, while others would draw upon local history to strengthen identity.

The area chosen for the detail design was a parking lot located immediately behind the historical Freia chocolate Factory north of trendy Grßnerløkka. The factory itself is a cultural treasure throve containing art by E. Munch and a landscaped garden for workers. As the factory is not open to the public, the idea was to extend the artistic theme of the factory to the outside, to accommodate other workers and local residents.

The design itself was inspired by all things sweet - candywrappers, chocolate boxes and kitchy popular culture (think Jeffrey Koons giant candywrapper sculptures). It included fragrant trees, a colourbursting meadow, a cool reflective, terraced pool and a stage for the local theatres and night clubs.

University of Life Sciences, A Residential Development

The final asignment of my second year as a student was to create a residential development on a given plot of land outside of Oslo. The class was split into groups, who analysed the plot and then developed individual suggestions for the laoyout of the development. As part of our analysis, we looked at the site’s topography, climatic conditions and bio diversity on site. Based on our findings we created a “Yes/No/Maybe” plan, to guide us while we developed our proposals. The assignment brief was to create as many plots for houses as possible, allowing only detached, semi-detached and terraces to be built. We also had to follow guidelines and parametres from the Norwegian Road Department and the Norwegian Building Association. After creating individual suggestions, we created a plan based on all of the designs together.

The assignment brief called for a presentation plan, showing all new spot heights and levels. In addition came the regulation plan drawing, along with a detailed regulation plan for the site. This plan was in adherence to the overall regulation plan for Ski Council,where our plot was situated. A technical plan with sections was also made, to clarify the placement of ditches for drainage, electrics and water and waste. All roads were placed along contour lines, to minimise intervention in the landscape.

Writtle School of Design, Bringing Down the Sky

This assignment allowed us to explore a chosen artist through simulating their work process. The artist I chose was James Turrell, who works with light and how we percieve the sky and natural light. Much of his work uses “windows” to give the viewer a framed view of the sky and the light; his indoor works deal with light, temperature and the effect it has on our mood and perception. Turrell is not a trained artist, his work process carries more resemblance to his scientifis background. Perhaps the most known part of his work process are his highly sculptural models, often made in collaboration with architects. The end product of the assignment documented the process of design for a “hive” in a slope, creating to viewports for the morning and evening sky.

Lilystone Close is a small residential development outside the Village of Stock, Essex. The development dates back to the 1930â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and consists of four small cottages made for the workers of Lilystone Estate, just opposite. The houses are built in the Arts and Crafts style, which heavily influenced the design. The brief was to improve the communal area in front of the cottages as well as redesign the garden for nr. 3. The communal area was designed in an era when there were no cars, which showed in the existing state of the grounds. The new design focused on plants found in Arts And Crafts style gardens, such as those of Gertrude Jekyll. Plantings were also used to to create separate, more hidden areas for the residentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; cars to park. The private garden was designed as a succession of rooms, fulfilling the familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s needs.

Writtle School of Design, Paris, Au Centre-Ville, The Artists’ Protest

This assignment was to create a conceptual design for the site of the Eiffel Tower in Pars. The main focus was on presentation and graphics, but we were also asked to resolve some of the traffic issues on site. The space in between the tower and the river is dominated by heavy traffic; pedestrians, who make up the large part of visitors, must always yield to motor vehicles and must cross the wide boulevard several times to cross the street. The suggested design closed the bridge off for vehicles, allowing only cyclists and pedestrians. The bridge could then also be used for events and markets, such as Charles Bridge in Prague. The park surrounding the tower was altered slightly to allow more lush plantings, connecting the countryside to the city. Additional planting was also places along the bridge and running along the road, taking their forms from the pattern of the tower’s iron beams. The concept was based on the Artists’ Protest, a documtn signed by artists and intellectuals, petitioning the tower not to be built. It was, they felt, and industrial monstrosity. The softening of the landscape and the reclaimed pedestrian space reflects this more bohemian attitude, grunding the space around the tower more firmly to it’s history and the different ideologies of the time.

The detail plan also shows the outline for the new traffic layout, with two lanes less than the current situation and more room for cyclists. All cyclists must dismount crossing the bridge. The underpass is kept as it is a simple way of minimising the impact of traffic.

Writtle School of Design, Lee Valley Park

Lee Valley Country Park sits in the East of England, stretching from Hertford to Bow, London, where it meets the river Thames. The park is regulated by Green Belt policies in the north, as well as Metropolitan Open Land policies in the south.

The River Lee runs throughout the park, with a canal system as well as lakes and landfill sites adding to the character of the landscape. The valley landscape not only contributes to shaping itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s local surroundings; produce from agricultural land and greenhouses around the valley is exported to the rest of the country. One of the more famous exports is the Lee Valley Cucumber. Production of cucumbers goes all the way back to the 19th century, when the Rochford family set up their first greenhouses there. By the 1930â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, the Lee Valley had the highest concentration of greenhouses in the world.

With a rich cultural heritage, the valley still performs and important role in a larger context of ecology, industry and urban fabric. The linear park, spanning through Hertfordshire, Essex and London, is managed by the Lee Valley Regional Park Authority.

The assignment brief was to create an overall strategy for the park as well as a design for a site within the park. With the upcoming London 2012 Olympics, Lee Valley Park would be part of the Legacy; at the same time it was important to keep the strategy and design within the framework for Green Belts and Metropolitan Open Space.

A strategy was made to fit into existing development framework and local initiatives. The design was kept to a minimum of interventions, with more focus on pragramming activities that would work within the existing features of the site.

The site has diverse and interesting features, which could be developed into rich programming. This could benefit the local area as well as the region, attracting visitors and offering opportunities for learning. Different points within the site could be activated different times through the year to attract a constant stream of visitors.

The design of the detailed site suggests a boardwalk crossing the bird reserve in the north, all across the river onto the island, connecting pathways and creating a longer more interesting walk. To the site a wildflower meadow is suggested for biodiversity, tying in with bird watching sites across the park. Yasmin Maria Khan
