Riccardo Battel

I am a trained landscape architect really keen on gardens design. I am trying to round the world, working in different countries, to experience the widest variety of ideas and approaches. I love plants, art and photography and I hope one day to open my own studio in Italy and create original and sophisticated green spaces.

Biography

During my training in Urban Planning at University IUAV of Venice I was fascinated by Landscape and in particularly by Garden History.
My first approach was a brilliant lecture by Frank Martina about The Iconography of Garden throughout History of Art. This is the first spark stimulated me to move to Florence where, during the course of Landscape Architecture, I could deepen
the Italian tradition of Garden Design.
I spent many afternoons in the garden of Villa Boboli and probably it was there I cultivated unconsciously the idea for my dissertation.
This was focused on the relation between Art and Nature and it proposed an innovative restoration of the Open Air Museum of Villa Marignana in Mogliano Veneto.
Then I felt to move in an other country and I was
welcomed to the Austen Design Associates in Ireland. Here I had the opportunity to work on small and big gardens. Following the design process from the analysis to construction details, I improved my personal skills.
The last step to complete my training was attending the Planting Design Course at LCGD in London in 2019, where I improved my plant knowledge.
I am now headed to Singapore where I am going to work as Landscape Architect.
