Hitomi Tamura Londeix

Senior Landscape Architect

 

Having begun her career in France, where she developed large-scale urban designs, Hitomi has recently joined the practice.  She studied architecture in both Japan and Paris and thus brings to her work a variety of solutions and points of view from different cultures. Focusing on the public realm, her analysis and subsequent graphic visualisations transform complex situations into legible ones, resulting in simple and clear design solutions.

Hitomi has a sensitivity to the relationship between people and nature, changing seasons and moving shadows. She believes that quality public spaces can create a positive narrative, as well as places where people love to live.

Hitomi’s interest in place-making is manifested in her role as the Vice-President of non-profit organisation RAD Paris, that investigates the similarities and differences between the cultures of Tokyo, Paris and other world cities through exhibitions and workshops.

Hitomi loves dancing swing – often in public spaces, accompanied by good wine, her trumpet or her feet alone.
