Bart Brands (Hengelo, 1962) studied landscape architecture at the RijksHogere School voorTuin- en Landschapsinrichting (State College of Gardening and Landscaping) in Boskoop and, thereafter, a few years of urbanism at the Academy of Architecture in Amsterdam.
He played a major role, for instance, in the design of Federation Square in Melbourne (AU), Købmagergade in Copenhagen (DK), De NieuweOoster cemetery in Amsterdam and the feasibility study for Cross River Park in London (UK). In recent years, he has worked primarily in the field of university sites and campuses, including the transformation of the VU campus in Amsterdam, the Delft University of Technology and Science Park Amsterdam. He also plays an important role in the larger PPP projects of Karres en Brands, such as the winning plan for the Kromhout Barracks in Utrecht, the Defence Museum in Soesterberg and the plan for the new National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM) in Utrecht.
Bart is a visiting lecturer at the TU Berlin, ETH Zurich, the Academy of Architecture (Amsterdam/ Rotterdam), the Utrecht School of the Arts, Fachhochschule (Berlin), Gesamthochschule (Kassel), Orange Landscape (Vienna), the University of New South Wales (Sydney) and the Anhalt University of Applied Sciences (Bernburg). He is currently adjunct professor at the RMIT University (Melbourne).
The conference is within the Workshop “Landscapes of contemporary production” and is part of the”Focus on Landscape“, a series of meetings open to the public with some landscapers, teachers, students of the Master in Landscape Architecture UPC-ACMA based in Milan, interpreters of the main international experiences: the moment of exchange and discussion of current issues more and more, not only for technicians and professionals but also for the growth of a widespread awareness in society that necessarily share the common heritage of the landscape.
