Jana Crepon talk at Leeds Beckett University

Jana Crepon talk at Leeds Beckett University


Jana Crepon, a top figure in the renowned Dutch landscape design and interior architecture practice, Inside Outside, will share the secrets of her success with students and practitioners in Leeds.

Jana Crepon, Senior Partner and Landscape Architect at Inside Outside, will give a free public talk as part of the School of Art, Architecture and Design’s annual INSIDE/OUT lecture series.

Inside Outside was founded in Amsterdam in 1991 by lead designer, Petra Blaisse, addressing both the interior and exterior space and working on commissions of small to very large scale, within the Netherlands and internationally. It is made up of a team of designers across several disciplines: art, architecture, interior design, and landscape design. Combining traditional and contemporary methods, the team uses sound, light, climate and the effects of time as their tools to trigger viewers’ curiosity and surprise.

Inside Outside design curtains, interiors, exhibitions, gardens, parks, public spaces, green roofs and masterplans. The team’s portfolio includes a range of UK-based projects, from designing the stage curtains and acoustic drapes for the Hackney Empire theatre in London to the darkening, sun-screening and sound absorbent curtains in the Mick Jagger Centre’s concert hall. Internationally, their work includes: the creation of a landscape masterplan for the new Cultural District in Kowloon, Hong Kong; a new landscape plan for the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, USA, connecting the Center with the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden; and the design of the public square and outdoor areas of the new Performing Arts Centre in Taipei, Taiwan. 

Jana Crepon was born in Germany in 1970 and studied at Edinburgh College of Art and the Technical University of Dresden, Germany, before beginning her professional career at DS Landscape Architects in Amsterdam. She then moved on to work as the project manager on a complex 491 hectare private-public partnership development for Strootman landscape architects before joining Inside Outside in 2007. Here she has been leading the landscape design team, working on multiple landscape projects of different scale and scope in Qatar, China, Taiwan, Italy, Belgium, the Netherlands and the United States. Since 2013 she has also been very involved in the Amsterdam Academy of Architecture - teaching architecture, urban design and landscape architecture students.

Jana’s talk has been organised in collaboration with the Yorkshire branch of the Landscape Institute, who will hold their annual general meeting prior to the lecture as well as a drinks reception and dinner. It also forms part of Leeds Beckett’s celebration of 50 years of Landscape Architecture education at the University.
