Denise Hoffman Brandt, RLA, is director of the Graduate Landscape Architecture Program at the Spitzer School and principal of Hoffman Brandt Projects, LLC. Selected speculative design research projects have focused on refugee camps (“Relief Organism” in The Right to Landscape, Ashgate Press, 2011), carbon storage infrastructure (City Sink, Oscar Riera Ojeda, 2013), and climate-adaptive infrastructure (Waterproofing New York, co-edited with Catherine Seavitt Nordenson, Urban Research, 2014). Critical writing includes “The Body in the Library, or a Blood Meridian” (Journal of Landscape Architecture, March 2018), which discusses the role speculative practices can play in adapting the discipline of landscape architecture to dynamic socioenvironmental forces.
