Jimi Demi Ajayi

Senior Designer

Jimi’s life has seen him immersed in a variety of cultures. From growing up in Nigeria and the UK before moving to the US, he has grown to understand the importance of the cultural identity of people being reflected in their built environment. He believes this must be coupled with environmentally conscious designs and ecologically appropriate living systems.

His professional experience spans from non-profit school yards to civic spaces. He has significant interest that vary in scale. They include community engagement, waterfront design, and over-structure landscapes.

He obtained his bachelor’s degree in Landscape Architecture from Pennsylvania State University in 2018 and also has certificates from the Barcelona Architecture Center in Spain and the Akademie fur international in Bonn Germany. He also collaborated with the University of Rio de Janeiro on a study of informal settlements in Santa Marta Brazil.

Advocacy is very important to him as he has co-led BLM initiatives and focuses on matters such as equality and equity in the design process as well as the field as a whole.
