Knowlton Hall
275 W Woodruff Ave

Katherine Jenkins is an Associate Professor of Landscape Architecture at the Knowlton School and cofounder of the design-research studio, Present Practice. Through research, teaching and practice, she implements original methods of fieldwork that facilitate ecological restoration and promote creative engagement with the environment. Within this framework, she examines connections between walking and design drawing—the ways in which each delineates territory, modifies land, and leaves traces. Katherine received an MLA from the University of Virginia and a BA in painting and printmaking from Yale University. She is a recipient of the MacDowell Fellowship in Architecture and the Rome Prize in Landscape Architecture.
