Thijs de Zeeuw is a landscape architect and NatureOptimist
He designs for the non-human.
Designing for ‘the other’ comes with a responsibilty:
it requires a dialogue…
But how to listen to an elephant, an eel or even a rock?
In the era of the anthropocene we will have to learn to listen again; therefore agency and affordances are at the core of his work
in 2022 he is the Architect in Residence (AiR) at ARCAM
