CCNY Lecturer Andrea Johnson Wins Prestigious Fellowship

Andrea Johnson MLA ’15 is one of six practitioners worldwide to be selected for the 2020-2021 cohort of the Landscape Architecture Foundation Fellowship for Innovation and Leadership. Using decentralized solar projects in NYC as a lens for analysis, her project will investigate the ways in which communities are building social power through energy generation and how the landscape discipline might reinforce these movements. Ultimately, she seeks to develop planning and design criteria that embrace the dynamic nature and cultural dimensions of power systems.​

Johnson, who completed her MLA at City College, was one of LAF’s 2015 Graduate National Olmsted Scholar Finalists.
