Camille Poureau

Landscape architect

Camille Poureau (1992) grew up in Bretagne, France. She started her higher education combining humanities, history and geography at the college in Toulouse. After this preparatory studies, she entered the Landscape Architecture National School of Versailles (Ecole Nationale Supérieure du Paysage). There, she worked on various geographic scales and contexts, challenged to test strong concept proposals and develop sensitive communication tools. She became particularly interested in the strong interactions of landscape architecture with the constant evolutions of society, and in its cultural reflections.

During her one year exchange at the Aalto University (Helsinki), she chose to study together with water engineers and architects. In a special studio class on the island of Bohol, Philippines, they proposed an urban planning to prevent climate risks and contain the fast development of the town Tubigon. 

She completed her diploma in Versailles, with a thesis project about Riga, the capital of Latvia (“Reclaims the heart(s) of Riga - Vegetation as an Anticipator for Urban Planning“). In the age of capitalism, of the obsolescence of Soviet public spaces and of economic instabilities, Riga must reinvent itself in order to ward off the exodus of its inhabitants to the new suburbs. The thesis proposes new typologies for public spaces, through the valorisation of the existing vegetation layer, paying special attention to its cultural Latvian meaning. In her final proposal, Camille explored models of pre-greening and «landscape 0» to develop modern public spaces in the «waiting for investment» areas between the port and the historical center.

Parallel to her studies, Camille developed participatory projects in the North of Paris within the landscapers’ organisation Chifoumi. Their ecological motto met the desire of the inhabitants for more green and public spaces, in the realisation and maintenance of a new public park. 

After six months of professional experience with VNF (Voies Navigables de France) and the completion of her masters degree internship at H+N+S, Camille started working as junior landscape architect in March 2017. 

In her free time, she enjoys being on her bike, in books and at the sea.
