Saskia de Wit, landscape architect, is assistant professor at the Section of Landscape Architecture, Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands. She holds a Master’s degree from Wageningen University and a PhD from Delft University of Technology. She combines teaching and research with practice at her own firm Saskia de Wit tuin en landschap. Her research focuses on the garden as a core concept of the field of landscape architecture, as expressed in her recent publication Hidden Landscapes (2018) which ties the concept of the enclosed garden as an expression of landscape to contemporary metropolitan developments. She uses the concept of the garden as a lens for research into perception of place, sensory landscape qualities and contemporary notions of nature. She can be reached at s.i.dewit@tudelft.nl.
