Elizabeth Hixson

Elizabeth Hixson joined us in June through a Research Assistant in Practice placement sponsored by the Department of Landscape Architecture, College of Design, University of Minnesota. Elizabeth is a candidate for a Master of Landscape Architecture at CDES.

Elizabeth is tasked with helping the Minneapolis Parks Foundation to further define the Next Generation of Parks™, through extensive research on Minneapolis, as well as drawing on case studies from around the world. She will engage in a design process of research, analysis and synthesis, identifying strategic park sites, projects and programs, as well as research decision making and entitlement processes. The work will conclude with a visual portfolio of process, findings and a database of information.
