Week 1 - Defining Ideas For a Shifting Shorline
Week 2: Urban Design
Week 4: Object Design
“I am fascinated by the layers—geologic, environmental, historic, economic, and social that stack up in time and create space. At its core, this is a poetic interest, but it engages my love for science, social science and art. I studied Urban Studies and have work experience in architecture and at Public Architecture, a nonprofit based in San Francisco that creates a range of options for engaging in design as a civic venture.
I love the diversity of scales landscape architects address. From larger questions of city-wide sustainability, to the intimate feel of materials and views at human scale, we have to be generalists and specialists in both ideas and space. On the big scale, I am interested in how natural systems can be a more integrated part of cities, and how cities can function more ecologically. I’m also very interested in whether and how landscape architecture can address socioeconomic issues and act as an economically empowering force.”
