Diverse environments aid creativity

Sidonie studied Landscape Architecture as a Postgraduate student.

“The course gave me time and space to hone my style – it was a chance to show people ‘this is me; this is the landscape architect I want to be’. The staff really support you, they put real effort into helping you develop and refine your style. One of the best things was being surrounded by people of all ages and backgrounds. That diverse environment is really conducive to being creative.

Since completing my masters in Landscape Architecture, I have worked for a couple of International Masterplanning Studios where I gained experience in several conservation-led masterplans that will contribute to the Vision 2030 for Saudi Arabia.

A few years later, I was lucky enough to live and work in Japan’s beautiful northern island of Hokkaido, where I gained experience in designing highly flexible public realm that would provide interest for communities in the Island’s extreme winters and warm summers. I am now happily working at LDA Design in Bristol and continuing to grow my skills in placemaking on a wide range of projects from community spaces and streetscapes to large scale new communities.”

The postgraduate course gave Sidonie the chance to take the next step in her career. Having worked for an architecture company in London, she returned to study with us further her career and work towards full chartership.
