Stanley H. White Lecture: Theodore Hoerr
Theodore Hoerr is a licensed landscape architect and urban designer who has led the design and implementation of a diverse range of projects in North and South America, Asia, Europe, and the Middle East. His body of work ranges from large-scale urban strategies to reshape the future of cities to small-scale landscapes that emphasize the craft of building. His professional and academic work explores how landscape’s innate ability to change creates new emergent forms and experiences that synthesize culture, nature, and the built environment.
Hoerr holds a Bachelor of Landscape Architecture degree from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and Master of Landscape Architecture and Master of Landscape Architecture Urban Design (with distinction) degrees from the Harvard Graduate School of Design. He currently teaches in the Department of Landscape Architecture at the Rhode Island School of Design.
Previous to founding Terrain Work, Hoerr worked in several leading international design practices. He was a Principal at Balmori Associates, where he led the design of large-scale urban projects in New York City; Bogota, Colombia; and Sao Paulo, Brazil, and an award-winning master plan for the University of Iowa Art Campus. Prior to that, Hoerr was a Senior Associate at EDAW/AECOM and a designer at Richard Haag Associates in Seattle, Washington.
