Vincent Javet is a Swiss-Canadian designer, design theorist, and educator. Formally trained as a landscape architect and urban planner, his research focuses on the ontology and topology of landscapes, using entropy as a guiding force in his spatial research to create and reveal the unconventional within the conventional. He is committed to studying environmental performance and developing innovative design and visualization methods for dynamic landscapes through both his design and research work.
Vincent directs his independent spatial practice, OVJ, and serves as an instructor of digital design, visualization, and fabrication at the Department of Landscape Architecture at Rutgers University. He has practiced in Canada, Europe, and the United States with Unknown Studio, West 8 Urban Design and Landscape Architecture, and North Design Office. In addition to his international design experience, Vincent has held research positions with the Green Roof Innovation Testing Laboratory (GRIT Lab) at the University of Toronto, and the environmental nonprofit Green Roofs for Healthy Cities.
