ABOUT RANIA SIONA
Born (1985) in the beautiful Mediterranean country of Greece, surrounded since a very young age by plants and vegetables in the gardens of my grandparents I knew already that florists and gardeners are the happiest people.
I followed my instincts and I spend my studying years in Greece and England learning how to design with plants and nature, specializing in the management and the maintenance of the landscape around us.
Today I am based in Amsterdam and I am still exploring the opportunities to make the cities greener and more liveable.
I am a designer/ architect and I follow an ecological approach to planting gardens and public spaces. My experience is based on the integration of ecology and horticulture in order to achieve landscapes that are dynamic, with impact on people’s lives, and close to nature.
The primary objective of my work is to move the planting design and landscape horticulture from a functional role, to solving one of the major problems of our time, climate change.
