Denise Hoffman Brandt



Denise Hoffman Brandt is a professor of landscape architecture at the City College of New York, and principal of Hoffman Brandt Landscape Design in New York City. Hoffman Brandt’s work focuses on landscape as infrastructure — the social, cultural and environmental systems that sustain urban life and generate urban form. Among other recent awards, Hoffman Brandt has received the 2009 New York Prize Fellowship from the Van Alen Institute; her project City Sink has been awarded a 2010 Great Places award; and she is a 2010 Buckminster Fuller Challenge Semi-Finalist. Her planning proposal for resituating refugee relief planning as an urban construct received honorable mention in the Architectural Association’s Environmental Tectonics Competition and was featured in an international workshop on the right to landscape and will be included in the forthcoming publication.
