Adriaan Geuze is the founder and design director of the three branches of West 8 in Rotterdam, North America and Brussels and brings more than 35 years of experience in the fields of landscape architecture, urban design, and infrastructure.

Geuze is internationally acclaimed for his pioneering work in the Netherlands and abroad. Under his leadership, West 8 has realized more than two hundred projects in three decades. Many of these delivered projects resulted from major international design competitions, including: Governors Island in New York, Madrid RIO, in Spain, the waterfront of Toronto in Canada, and Jubilee Gardens in London.

Geuze received numerous awards for his work, including the Dutch Prix-de-Rome, the Maaskant Prize, the Oeuvre Prize for Architecture of the Mondriaan Fund, the ARC Oeuvre Award, and the ULI Netherlands Leadership Award. International prizes are the Veronica Rudge Green Prize for Urban Design (Harvard Design School) and several Honor Awards from the American Society for Landscape Architecture. In 2015, he was appointed a member of the Academy of Arts of the KNAW, an important recognition of his artistic merits. In 2022, Geuze was appointed a Professor of Landscape Architecture at Technical University Delft and the recipient of the Sir Geoffrey Jellicoe Award in Landscape Architecture, the preeminent award for landscape architects and the highest honour IFLA can bestow.
