Keynote speaker – Landscape Australia Conference 2017

Sylvia Karres studied landscape architecture at the State College of Gardening and Landscaping in Boskoop, the Netherlands, and at the Academy of Architecture in Amsterdam. She has previously worked at Bureau Maas, as well as for the province of North Holland and for ten years as a designer and project manager at Bureau Bakker and Bleeker (now B+B) in Amsterdam. In 1997, she founded the office of Karres and Brands along with Bart Brands.

Sylvia tackles a variety of tasks in the public domain, both at home and abroad. She has worked on several major design projects, such as the concept for the redevelopment of public space in the centre of Dutch city Breda, the design of Federation Square in Melbourne and Rijnhaven Park in Rotterdam. Intuition and a “sense of place” play an important role in Sylvia’s output. Sylvia enjoys working on projects at the intersection of urban planning, landscape architecture and architecture.
