Jennifer Engelke

My research investigates how urban waterfront landscapes can reveal human/more-than-human narratives and engage community in meaningful ways to create holistic systems. It examines landscape literacy, ecological literacy, and place attachment through the lens of systems-based thinking and design, specifically with storytelling through design, eco-revelatory design, and community engagement. Additionally, I am interested in ecological design, stormwater, restoration, watershed planning, community planning, green infrastructure, habitat design, natural systems, and urban ecology. As a licensed landscape architect, I have practiced in Austin, TX and Chicago, Il and am currently serving on the Landscape Architecture Foundation’s Board of Directors.
