Ir. Peter Veenstra (1980)

Partner and co-founder LOLA Landscape Architects, senior landscape architect. Peter leads many competition projects and design researches within the company and is active as a guest lecturer. In design projects he strives to turn innovative ideas into simple achievable designs. The designs question the relationship between nature, man and technique. Sensory experiences of light and sound and the sense of orientation are being used to create an experience. Freedom in movement and use is always the starting point, in both metropolitan environment as open nature. Examples are the design for Marstallplatz in Hannover, Naturalispark in Leiden and Star Maze park in Tytsjerk and the installation Composed Nature in Dordrecht and Neerpelt.
