Joost Emmerik is a garden and landscape architect. Joost searches for a serene simplicity, combining clear lines, robust materials and luscious planting into places that grow more exuberant over time.
A firm belief in the evoking power of gardens and a need for them in this day and age form the basis of his work. The garden as a room, not belonging to mankind, but to nature.
Joost is head of the Master’s programme in Landscape Architecture at the Amsterdam Academy of Architecture. He is also visiting lecturer at Technical University Delft and the Rotterdam Academy of Architecture and is a member of the Talent Building Committee of the Creative Industries Fund.
