Catherine De Almeida is an assistant professor of landscape architecture at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln where she teaches courses examining the multiscalar implications of materiality and waste. With a Bachelor of Architecture from Pratt Institute and a Master of Landscape Architecture from Harvard University Graduate School of Design, she explores ways of creating multiplicity within a single entity, space, building, or site to form greater efficiencies and performative capabilities in design. Her design-research is built around landscape lifecycles—a holistic approach integrating multiple programs to form hybrid assemblages in the transformation of landscapes and materials associated with waste.
