Laurel Li



With a background in artistic design, Laurel Li received her MLA degree at the University of Southern California. The complexity of the ideological theories as well as the uncertain beauty of landscape inspired her to see landscape architecture as a flowing field composed of multiple spontaneously growing layers, including ecological, cultural, and social aspects. Laurel reads the existing and potential logic of the site and translates it into design that respects and integrates the urban context, while encouraging the new identity and performance of the place.
