KATY FOLEY, RLA
Katy Foley is a landscape architect whose independent design practice aims to negotiate the complexities of cultural land use with resilient landscape systems. For some time now she has composed reconnaissance artifacts into collections of small research pieces. Compelled to find case studies with an uncertain future she aims to reveal themes of global motivation by investigating strategic locations with hot geologic action, cultural disturbance, and potentially new biological insights. In its best realization these past bits will correlate across individual intrepid research threads to announce opportunity in surmounting our modern obstacles. With a Master of Landscape Architecture from the Rhode Island School of Design and a background in fine art and installation from the Maryland Institute College of Art, her approach to landscape systems thinking is spatial, tactile, and visionary.
