Arjan has a Bachelor's degree in urban planning and a Master's degree in urban design. He worked for leading urban design and landscape architecture offices in Amsterdam [Netherlands] and also was four years part of the urban design team at the Planning Department of Amsterdam.
For four years Arjan combined his work as an urban designer with being an energetic adjunct professor of urban design at the Academy of Architecture in Amsterdam.
He worked and lived in Zimbabwe and Indonesia where he experienced how simple, spot on designs can make a huge impact on quality of life. This combination of experiences defines his personal style as a designer.
