Jotaro Tokunaga

Jo joined our Altrincham studio in 2013 after graduating from the University of Sheffield with a MLA. Throughout his year in practice and post-graduation he spent time travelling North America, Europe and Japan, soaking a range of built projects and cultural landscapes, which informs his problem solving and design approach to unique sites, detailing and contemporary practice.

His competition entries and student work has been published in the Journal of the Landscape Institute and he received the national Landscape Institute student award in 2011. His interests lie in graphical representation and the arc between the geographical sublimities of a powerful site and the sociological opportunities present in restorative and responsible placemaking.

At Planit Jo has become a valued member of the team and provides an informed approach to landscape architecture, providing the studios with a wealth of project examples and case studies. He utilizes this knowledge through his work which includes a number of key sports, leisure and challenging public realm projects.
