WHAT WE DO
We examine opportunities for design to enhance the social and ecological performance of conventional working landscapes.
In both graduate and undergraduate coursework, we emphasize a synthetic, multi-scale approach to the design and representation of landscape systems.
Design is fundamentally about people. Whether through public installations or participatory workshops, our work explores ways for design to help communities better understand and engage with agricultural landscapes.
