Joanna Asia Milewska
After finishing my master’s at the Warsaw University of Life Sciences, I worked for Topos magazine in Munich whilst pursuing an academic career as a researcher and teaching assistant at the Anhalt University of Applied Sciences in Germany. I developed my skills in landscape architecture working in Norway, Germany and the UK.
Since joining LDA Design in 2013, I have worked on a fantastic range of projects including Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and North West Cambridge – both of which set industry benchmarks in sustainability. I am currently helping to deliver a new sports centre for the University of Portsmouth that is aiming to be the first to achieve BREEAM Outstanding. Treating the Earth’s finite resources carefully matters a great deal to me. I authored a series of articles published in Poland about sustainable landscape design, biomimicry, habitat creation and nature conservation.
Outside of work, you are likely to find me helping to transform my local green space, Meath Gardens. I am also an enthusiastic photographer (I took many of the people photos on the LDA Design site), and explorer, seeking out adventure in remote corners of the world from West Papua to Tajikstan to the ‘hidden’ Himalayas in Yunnan, China. I am a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society.
