Landscape Architecture


Katya Crawford received her bachelor's degree from The Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington and holds an MLA from The University of New Mexico School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape Architecture.

Katya taught undergraduate design studios in UNM's architecture program for four years and in 2007 she was a visiting professor at Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology in Australia. In addition to teaching, Katya has worked as a consultant for Laboratory for Landscape Architecture, Kramer Woodard Architects, Sam Sterling Architects, Antoine Predock Architects, Martina Lorey Architects as well as a freelance graphic designer. 

Katya's research interests lie in the representation of landscape from two distinct perspectives: 1) How visual methodologies (drawing, photography, collage, montage) influence critical thinking in the studio design process and 2) How mass media and popular culture influence our ideas of Nature, Culture, and Landscape and what that means for landscape architects. 

Katya is currently teaching The Urban Typologies Studio and Theory in Landscape Architecture and Environmental Design. Katya also teaches The Competition Studio and Site and Environment.
