Future Landscapes Design & Visualization

Founding Principal

FUTURE LANDSCAPES refers both to the physical landscapes we enjoy and the worlds we create visually and inhabit remotely. These digital visual worlds we create can be as impactful and memorable as the physical landscapes around us.

+ Design and produce ultra-high quality visuals for clients who need their work to have a serious visual  impact and convince clients, consultants, municipalities and community stakeholders;

+ Visualize concepts from very preliminary design discussions and sketches, teasing out the main design  lines and developing these through visual iterations in a quick and effective way;

+ Come up with creative concepts and strategies that are based on simple, solid design principles but that  can have a super-sized impact on a project’s outcomes; present these ideas and concepts effectively;

+ Lead my clients’ work into new territory with innovative modes of representation;

+ Deliver outstanding design & visual works that significantly boost my clients’ business, help sell products  and set new graphic standards within the field.

sinai Gesellschaft von Landschaftsarchitekten

Berlin, DE / sinai.de
Junior Designer, Competitions

The living environment of people is a particular condition of the profession of landscape architecture. This raises a responsibility for any location that is subject to change. No design—whether good or bad—has no meaning and no effect; therefore the conscious analysis of the interplay of form and content is the focus of the work of Sinai.

+ Worked with the competition team to design, visualize and present design concepts according to the submission guidelines within tight deadlines;

+ Worked with the project execution team through design development and detailing; made and managed complex 3D models to compare concepts, produce prototypes and assist with construction detailing;

+ Prepared details for construction prototypes and assisted with research, site analysis, concept sketching and graphics for presentations as required.
