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. He received his Masters in Urban Design with distinction (MLAUD) and Masters in Landscape Architecture (MLA II) from the Harvard Graduate School of Design. Theodore currently teaches in the Department of Landscape Architecture at the Rhode Island School of Design.
