Last Monday, a group of around twenty landscape architects and government officials from Slovakia gathered at Depot Boijmans Van Beuningen for a presentation by MTD landscape architects.

The delegation consisted of members from the 'Slovakia Association for Garden Design and Landscaping', who were in the Netherlands to gain inspiration and knowledge about rooftop landscapes.

Frank Meijer and Tommy Hendriks introduced the delegation to the philosophy of MTD landscape architects and the firm's projects where rooftops and landscapes converge, including the rooftop forest at the Depot. Additionally, an engaging discussion emerged about the current situation in Slovakia, the challenges of sustainable urban development, the impacts of climate change in Slovakia, and the social significance of landscape architecture.

Winy Maas from MVRDV, the designer of the Depot, joined the meeting last minute! We thank the delegation for the inspiring encounter and look forward to meeting again in the future.
