Welcome Nancy Seaton! Nancy joined us this last Fall as a design ecologist. She maintains a balance between physical engagement, research, and design. She is especially interested in the application of scientific principles in landscape architecture, including native species, succession and forestry. She is driven by her desire is to create projects that provide essential ecological services and provoke a nuanced, contemporary dialog with nature.
Nancy has extensive field experience from 14 years as a horticulturist and teacher at Brooklyn Botanic Garden and from exploring the urban wilds of the New York Metropolitan area with avid botanists. She holds a master's degree in landscape architecture from Harvard University's Graduate School of Design, a master's degree in landscape history from the Bard Graduate Center, and is co-editor of the journal, Prospect: a forum to encourage playful and critical response with a collaborative and interdisciplinary approach to central themes in landscape studies.
