Thijs de Zeeuw

landscape architect

Biography

Thijs de Zeeuw is a landscape architect and researcher. He designed several animal enclosures for the Royal Zoo of Amsterdam, ARTIS, where he developed a way of working from other than human perspectives. He was co-founder of the Zoo of the Future, -ZOOOF- a speculative research-and-design project on novel forms of co-habitation. He is the founder of the NATURE OPTIMIST, a platform for the happy, opportunistic and untameable nature in and around us; providing an alter ego which allows him to give unsolicited comments and advise on urban development in the name of all those other than human city dwellers. He will be Architect in Residence this year at ARCAM Amsterdam.
