About Prof. May
Bio of Karen May
Interests ranging from computer-aided analysis and modeling to site-specific art installations inform my approach to landscape architecture. Before arriving at Illinois, I was an Associate and Practice Lead for Ecology at Plant, in Toronto. For two years, I also worked at Louisiana State University’s Coastal Sustainability Studio, where I developed visualizations about environmental change and infrastructure in Louisiana’s coastal landscapes for a public exhibition and outreach campaign for the State’s Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority. I have participated in several group art shows, including Grow-op, an annual exhibit about landscape and place held at Toronto’s Gladstone Hotel. I use design to bring beauty, functionality, and a touch of the wild into urban spaces.
