Marion Preez


Marion has been working as a Landscape Architect for 12 years, living, working and studying in Germany, Netherlands and Denmark. For the last 12 years she had been based in Scotland. She has been undertaken artist residencies in Denmark as well as Scotland. Through her MFA Marion developed her own art practice allowing her to bring varied approaches and viewpoints to her work as a landscape architect. It allows her to detach herself from the practical requirements of a project to look for the essence, feelings, emotions and memories of the site. Her aim is to bring elements, shapes, forms, textures into a site breaking the existing order and situation and challenging the viewers perception of the everyday.

In 2016 Marion joined the Dementia Services Development Centre, University of Stirling as an Associative bringing her knowledge on designing outdoor spaces for elderly and people living with dementia. She is also one of the co-producers of The Architecture Fringe, supporting new work and emerging practice in architecture in Scotland, developing a friendly but critical community of voices to connect, support and challenge each other as well as offering a platform to encourage a wider conversation about architecture and design in Scotland in a contemporary socio-political context.
