Johanna Ballhaus
Senior Associate
Johanna grew up in the South of Germany, in a family of artists. Her work is heavily influenced by the sensory dimensions of landscape, such as sound, smell and texture. She is particularly interested in the opportunities natural processes such as ecological succession afford landscape architects, and in the constant change and biodiversity of wildflower meadows.

Johanna graduated from the Technical University of Berlin in 2007 with a Dipl. Ing. in Landscape Architecture. Before joining MVVA, she worked at NIPPAYSAGE in Montreal for seven years. She has also worked at DLANDstudio in Brooklyn, at A24landschaft in Berlin and as a freelance landscape designer and gardener in the Mid-Hudson Valley. She loves to dance and is part of a Swing Chorus Line.
