Judith Yang

Judith comes to landscape architecture through her interest in the relationship between design, perception, identity and value. Prior to pursuing landscape architecture, Judith studied localized food systems by working for a 1-acre kitchen garden in Charlottesville, Virginia and a land trust that establishes and manages community gardens throughout Providence, Rhode Island. Through this work she became immersed in the implications of land stewardship at a variety of scales and became increasingly curious about how the design of these landscapes could influence the way people perceive and draw value from them. 

Judith received her Masters of Landscape Architecture from Cornell University. She joined ACLA in 2019 and is excited to delve deeper into designing spaces that stimulate people’s sense of their surroundings and draw emotion across a vast range of scales.
