Judy van Gelderen
Judy is a landscape architect with over 30 year’s experience in the integration of broad scale landscape planning, the integration of infrastructure and urban design, through to the detail landscape design for public domain projects. She employs environmentally sustainable approaches to the landscape and implementation of large-scale green infrastructure projects.
Her passion lies in understanding and exploring the connectedness with the landscape, (large and small scale projects) and in large scale environmental projects, especially those dealing with nature, culture and water. Judy has a Doctorate in Environmental Design, has won multiple awards for her work with sensitive water design, environmental planning, landscape architecture and urban design. Judy has experience in all aspects of landscape architecture from the broad scale open space planning of new towns, to concept design route selection for a 40km road corridor, to foreshore parks/public domain, to landscape character and visual assessment, to detailed urban/landscape design for tender, and on site surveillance with contractors.
As her expertise spans a wide experience base, Judy often leads multi-disciplinary teams, with strategic vision, sound environmental ethics, and a cooperative approach to integrate the big picture so that the outcomes reflect a sense of place, sustainable principles, and community aspirations. Adding to her string of achievements, Judy is also a Churchill Fellow (2000), and in her fellowship, she researched sustainable water planning and design through developments in Europe and Israel.
