Panita Karamanea


The main objective of her work is the holistic approach of space within the framework of ecological – sustainable design, the project’s integration in the landscape with respect to the unique qualities and memories of each location (genius loci), and the socio-cultural conditions of place. Among the special aims of her projects are the design solutions emphasising on a close connection to nature and its processes, on the natural dynamics and their biodiversity, on vegetation as a structural spatial element.  Conceiving built space and andscape as a unique entity might create places where humans feel involved, in harmony with their environment and are keen of taking the responsibility for its maintenance.

Teresa Moller


Teresa Moller is a well-known Chilean Landscape Architect that has been working in the field for the past 30 years. It has been a self-training journey, working on a variety of projects of different scales. Her work approach is unique, careful observation and awareness of the landscape is key for developing successful social-culture projects. Bringing nature accessible to people so they can connect and value nature around them is essential within her work philosophy. One of the most important aspects before starting a design is to consider what is on site and then what is needed to bring the experience of nature to people. She strongly believes in the power of simplicity. Chile benefits from such contrasting landscapes, wedged between the Pacific Ocean to the west and the Andes mountain to the east; it is a country that offers remarkable natural resources. She considers herself lucky of being able to work with such a diversity of landscapes, from the Atacama Desert to the lakes and glaciers of the south, as they have taught her everything and have been the setting for the majority of the projects in the studio. Every project is a direct and unique result of its environment.

Kathryn Moore


Kathryn Moore, Immediate Past President of the International Federation of Landscape Architects (IFLA) and Professor of Landscape Architecture at Birmingham City University has published extensively on design quality, theory, education and practice. Her book, Overlooking the Visual: Demystifying the Art of Design (2010) provides the basis for critical, artistic discourse. Her teaching, research and practice, set within landscape architecture have clear implications for architecture, planning, urban design and other art and design disciplines, in addition to philosophy, aesthetics and education more generally. She has taken a lead role in redefining the relationship between landscape, culture and governance, finance, health and community engagement within the context of a radical proposal for a West Midlands National Park, launched in a major international conference held at BCU in June 2018. She is a member of the Independent National Design Review Panel for HS2.

Walter Hood


Walter is the Creative Director and Founder of Hood Design Studio in Oakland, California. Hood Design Studio is his tripartite practice, working across art + fabrication, design + landscape, and research + urbanism. He is also a professor of landscape architecture at the University of California, Berkeley and lectures on professional and theoretical projects nationally and internationally. Walter designs and creates urban spaces and objects that are public sculpture. Believing everyone needs beauty in their life, he makes use of everyday objects to create new apertures through which to see the surrounding emergent beauty, strangeness, and idiosyncrasies of urban space. His ideas emerge from years of studying and practicing architecture, landscape architecture, and fine arts, and yet Walter tactfully eschews from differentiating between the three on any one project. His projects also highlight. The Studio’s award winning work has been featured in publications including Dwell, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Fast Company, Architectural Digest, Places Journal, and Landscape Architecture Magazine. Walter Hood is also a recipient of the 2017 Academy of Arts and Letters Architecture Award.
