Distinguished Professor of Landscape Architecture

Frisian cow and me

Welcome. 
    Here you'll find an overview of my work in landscape architecture and spatial planning. I focus on ecological applications in design and planning,
riparian urbanism, green networks, novel ecosystems, and cross-cultural design with underserved communities.
    I've enjoyed collaborating with other action researchers in south Asia and sub-Sahara Africa to foster community / landscape resilience in the face of climate change and globalization. Lately I've been exploring convivial greenstreets in European cities.
    I teach several studios, seminars, and field courses, with an emphasis on community-engaged design.
