Yazid Ninsalam


Yazid Ninsalam is a Lecturer in the Landscape Architecture Program. He holds a Doctor of Philosophy in Architecture and was awarded concurrent degrees in Master of Landscape Architecture and Bachelor of Arts (Architecture) with honours from the National University of Singapore. He previously worked as a landscape architect for the National Parks Board of Singapore after spending four years in the Landscape Ecology module as a doctoral researcher at the Future Cities Laboratory, a research program of the Singapore-ETH Centre established by ETH Zurich and Singapore’s National Research Foundation. His work as part of the interdisciplinary research project has been disseminated across exhibitions in various locations including Singapore, Jakarta, Zurich, and notably in Rotterdam and Munich - at the Urban by Nature, Sixth International Architecture Biennale Rotterdam and Draussen | Out There Landscape Architecture on Global Terrain, Architekturmuseum der TU München, Pinakothek der Moderne respectively. From 2015 to 2017, he served as council member of the Singapore Institute of Landscape Architects and was appointed as festival director of the 10th Singapore Architecture Festival.

His research foregrounds how landscape architects may deploy ubiquitous terrestrial and aerial sensing methods to produce precise local observations of human-environment conflicts that result from rapid urban transitions. This field intensive method has been applied within graduate design research studios which looks at urban landscapes in the cities of Mumbai, Manila, Bali, Jakarta, Manado, Singapore, and Ho Chi Minh City. His published work appears in the Journal of Landscape Architecture, Journal of Digital Landscape Architecture, International Journal of Architectural Computing, Computer-Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia, Journal of the American Water Resources Association, Journal of Sustainable Cities and Society, KERB Journal of Landscape Architecture, and Archives of the International Society of Photogrammetry, Remote Sensing and Spatial Sciences.
