van Laarhoven Living Landscapes received a talent development grand from Stimuleringsfonds voor de Creatieve Industrie. During a year to come Mirte will continue her work on a ‘Land-scaping’ design method.
Living Landscapes is a design practice that develops land-scaping interventions to regenerate nature.
Living in the Nederlands, where our design and planning tradition is defined by dominating nature, van Laarhoven uses a ‘go with the flow’ design mentality.
Living Landscapes develops design interventions that generate more self sustaining and biodiverse environments, which are inviting and accessible at the same time. Driven by this mission the practise supports challenges like multifunctional and climate adaptive landscapes in different ways.
