Dr. Carl Smith
Dr. Carl Smith is a landscape designer, urbanist and educator. He is particularly interested in the intersection between anthropogenic landscape change, and the values and beliefs of those affected. He is especially interested in the land-people relationships of everyday home-places, and especially where landscape change is motivated by ideas of sustainability and economic-progress. Ultimately the twin aims of his teaching, research and practice are, firstly, to inculcate and sharpen a sense of place-consciousness within himself and his students and, secondly, to understand how place-consciousness relates to the sustainability and resiliency of landscapes and cities. Carl received the Council of Educators in Landscape Architecture Excellence in Studio Teaching Award at the Senior Level in 2020: the highest honor awarded in his discipline. His first book, Residential Landscape Sustainability was elected as a keynote reference for sustainable design practice in 2018. Carl has held invited positions as a Dumbarton Oaks Scholar, Harvard University; the Bradford McConnell Awardee at the British School at Athens; and an Affiliate Fellow of the American Academy in Rome. In 2019, he was elected Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts in London.
