Research and Teaching

Anne C Godfrey, Assistant Professor of Landscape Architecture, emphasizes cross-disciplinary investigation through critical practices in photography. Her research centers on how photography influences the ways in which we understand, value and design for landscape places.  Her work bridges the gap between landscape architecture and theory in art, photography and visual studies.

In addition, her teaching engages speculative design for climate change resilience. Since 2011, students in her upper division design studios have won or been finalists in top professional international competitions.  Thus far 6 teams, 21 students total, have placed in the following competitions:  Land Art Generator Initiative, Biomimicry Global Design Challenge and TerraForm One's OnePrize.

The environmental design journal DesignIntelligence named Godfrey as one of the 30 Most Admired Educators in 2014. She received the Lord & Schryver Award from the Oregon Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects in 2016 for her mentorship of female students in the field.
