Joanna J. Yan BA (Hons), MA

Landscape Architect

Studied Landscape Architecture at Sheffield University, 2013-2015, Landscape Art and Design at Tianjin Science and technology University, China. 2007-2011

Joanna joined Grant Associates in 2015 after completing her master’s degree in Landscape Architecture at the University of Sheffield.

She enjoys focusing on an ecological and sustainable approach to landscape design, improving environmental quality and connecting people with nature. After working closely with Professor Nigel Dunnett, a world- leading planting design expert, Joanna has become interested in using planting as an art form. This allows her to explore artistic fields such as intuitive sense of spatial and visual aspects in the design process.

She has a keen interest in using varied graphic styles across a range of media, such as hand drawing alongside digital communication and visualisation skills.
