The International Federation of Landscape Architects (IFLA) represents the worldwide profession of Landscape Architecture. The Award Jury composed of a Landscape Architect from each of the five IFLA regions, and the Secretary General of ISOCARP (International Society of City and Regional Planners) who served as a guest member of the Jury, agreed with the nomination statement, that “Dirk has made, and makes, remarkable contributions to the profession, and the main quality of these contributions is that they redefine the profession, its borders, its strategy and its position”. The jury report continues: “… On the other hand, he questioned what natural processes, ranging from erosion and sedimentation to succession, can be turned into nature-based solutions for human needs. His work revolves around how these processes might be guided by landscape architecture to give them a meaningful spatial expression”.

Dirk has been professor of Landscape Architecture from 2011 until 2015 at TU Delft.
During this short period, he introduced the process-thinking approach into the curriculum of our master-track, which started in 2010. Since then many students involving natural processes in their designs in order to create meaningful landscape architectonic spaces with respect to the environment. The result of these projects can be viewed in the year-booklets of the graduation work.
