Diana is a landscape designer at SVN. Before joining the firm, she worked with North Design Office through the University of Toronto. Here, she contributed research for preservation of iconic works of landscape architecture in Toronto, and created designs aimed to reconcile fragmented landscapes through natural infrastructure.
Diana’s thesis focused on the regeneration of post-industrial ruins through landscape architecture. After studying the Jiu Valley’s riparian situation in Southwestern Romania, her thesis incorporated ecological ruins to revitalize contaminated soil and water in former coal mining towns.
Diana’s work is informed by landscapes that are inclusive, ecologically diverse, and have a strong focus on native plantings. Her longstanding interest in graphic design has shaped her passion for architectural representation. Diana’s training in the visual arts has influenced her interest in acrylic painting, which she pursues as a pastime activity.
