Welcome

Cornell University offers accredited, license-qualifying landscape architecture degrees at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The undergraduate landscape architecture degree is the only one of its kind in the Ivy League. Both academic programs provide a sound grounding in theory and technology which is deployed through the design studio and supplemental courses that inform the design process.

Due to its unique position within the university, the Department of Landscape Architecture promotes interaction and collaboration with other academic fields, including horticulture, architecture, city and regional planning, fine arts, and the natural and social sciences.

Jennifer Birkeland is a licensed landscape architect in the state of New York, a Fellow of the American Academy in Rome and a LEED accredited professional. She is the co-founder of the design practice, op-AL, a multidisciplinary studio in Brooklyn, New York and studies the relationships between optics, landscape and architecture in their work. The office approaches design problems by exploring the oppositions established by the vantage points of our two disciplines of focus, resulting in design solutions that strive to disintegrate the subject-object relationship conventionally established between Landscape + Building. Jennifer has worked with internationally renowned offices such as West 8OLIN, and Ken Smith Workshop, working on a wide range of projects including several national design competitions for the National Parks Service, including the winning design entry for the Washington Monument Grounds at Sylvan Theater in Washington DC.
