It's an incredibly exciting time to be part of the landscape architecture industry. That’s according to LOLA Architects founder Peter Veenstra – and he should know. The senior landscape architect has been turning innovative ideas into achievable designs for over 15 years (including unique urban park concept, Singelpark Leiden, pictured above.)

Veenstra is a speaker at Design Indaba 2018,  where he’ll be launching a special project as part of his talk. He says the global zeitgeist is moving towards offsetting the dreary side of urban life with elements of nature and the great outdoors.
