Craig Douglas is a Landscape Architect and scholar whose work focuses on innovative techniques and methodologies that explore the agency of representation in landscape architectural design. He is an Assistant Professor in the Landscape Architecture Department at the Graduate School of Design, Harvard University. His work explores the landscape as a dynamic material process in a constant state of flux through analytical and conceptual approaches integrating drawing, modeling, simulation, and sensing to make visible and reconstitute the landscape as a complex temporal and material manifold of differential space.
His approach supports informed and innovative responses to the challenges found at the nexus of the social, ecological, and built environment that embraces the spatial, temporal, and material complexity of the landscape. It explores design as an activity of making and as an agent for understanding and responding to the challenges of urbanization in a rapidly changing world that contributes to the complexity of the contemporary city in the age of climate crisis.
