Garden and landscape designer
Ruben trained as a landscape designer at Wageningen University. There he gained an insight into the different levels on which a landscape architect works and the various disciplines involved. He has strong analytical skills and is able to maintain an overview of complex problems. What appeals to him in particular about his field of work is the experience of a place, combined with bigger issues relating to flood protection, identity and sustainability. The right balance has to be found between a creative and unique design, practical feasibility and the various associated interests and constraints.
