Joanna is interested in the intersection of landscape architecture and media as a potential to generate both design and communication tools. She has used a variety of media techniques, ranging from film to analytical drawings, to research and explore new landscapes ranging from Hong Kong to the Netherlands, Iceland, Colombia and India while pursuing a dual Master’s degree in Landscape Architecture and Architecture at the University of Pennsylvania. She moved to Los Angeles after graduating in 2015, and since then has become enamored and fascinated with the city. Since then, she has primarily worked on projects in and around the Los Angeles area, and has developed a familiarity and passion for the plant communities in Southern California. Joanna has also researched and worked on topics of resilience, flooding and climate change through various internships and fellowships.
