Laura was drawn to landscape architecture out of a respect for her environment and its effect on people. She will graduate from Cornell University in 2012 with her bachelor’s degree in landscape architecture. Throughout her education at Cornell and beyond, she has been fascinated by the field of human-environment relations, seeing sociology and psychology as fundamental dimensions of landscape architecture. She became interested in memorial design as a result of the devastating February 22nd earthquake in New Zealand that she experienced firsthand during a semester abroad in Christchurch. At first inspired by a professor there, and now through her honors thesis, Interpreting Experience in the Landscape of Loss, she hopes to better understand the effects of memorial design on societies and individuals, and in turn, gain insight into the creation of truly captivating public places. She is excited by the power we have as designers to contribute to the well-being of individuals, communities, and the earth.

“Over the past 4 years at Cal Poly Pomona I have had the opportunity to work with some great professors, faculty and classmates. Without their guidance, hard work, motivation, and inspiration I would not be the same student or student leader I am today. I have learned the importance of making mistakes which has led me to embrace change. My design aesthetic has changed many times over the past four years but my work ethic has remained the same. My critical insight and curiosity has allowed me to embrace the unique relationship between infrastructure and the human condition. I sometimes only experience this ephemeral relationship as I pass it in a train, car, or on a bike but I hope to investigate these relationships through my continued education as a student of landscape architecture and urban design.”

Sara Safransky is a PhD student in the Department of Geography at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She is conducting qualitative, ethnographic, and archival research on the relationship among land policy, environmental change, and urban agriculture. Sara’s work is guided by a deep commitment to engaged scholarship, a passion for gardening, and more than twelve years of collaborative research on food systems issues with communities in the United States, Europe, and Latin America. Her proposed dissertation research examines an unprecedented urban agricultural experiment underway in Detroit, a city emptied-out through decades of industrial decline and poverty. Over the last few years, diverse groups of actors – including agricultural investors, city planners, community gardeners, and environmentalists – have begun to envision the city’s condemned lots as a prime location for small- and large-scale food and fuel production. Sara’s research examines the major processes shaping agrarian redevelopment in Detroit and the changing role of gardens and farming in American cities.
