Vullings de Moor (Berg en Terblijt) emphasises the re-evaluation of space and its use. Interior architect Lotte de Moor's background is in archaeology. A career switch saw a move from studying the historically designed environment to shaping the contemporary surroundings, and this is important to her design thinking: to provide and maintain the application of spatial translation. This offers existing situations with new and relevant applications or enables new designs in historically steeped environments.
Bureau Verbeek (Maastricht) works at the interdisciplinary convergence of landscape architecture, ecology, and urban design, for a future-oriented, sustainable, functional, and aesthetic blueprint of the natural and urban landscape. Therefore, the cultural history of a place and the characteristics of the landscape inform their starting points. Landscape architect Barry Kerckhoffs will further highlight the mission and projects of Bureau Verbeek in his lecture and relate the creation of new landscapes to working with existing environments.
