The Department of Landscape Architecture and Environmental and Urban Design is pleased to introduce our new faculty member, TJ Marston as a Visiting Instructor for the 2018-19 school year. She previously served as an adjunct faculty for the department.
TJ is a landscape creator with a strong history in professional practice and theoretical work. After receiving her Masters in Landscape Architecture from the University of Pennsylvania, TJ moved to Miami, Florida – a city standing at the forefront of climate change. While working for a local firm for 6 years, she led the design and project management of multiple award-winning projects. She currently leads Plot Studio, a design practice driven by a love for landscape and a thoughtful approach to design. Plot Studio’s work aims to bring catalytic change to sites and communities by deploying dynamic and adaptive design solutions sensitive to systemic ecological, social, and cultural challenges. As a Visiting Instructor at Florida International University, she combines her passion for teaching with her rigorous approach to uncovering dynamic solutions for real-world landscape challenges.
TJ: “I chose FIU because I wanted to work with diverse, thoughtful leaders finding answers to challenges facing our urban landscape in a time of great need. Since I started teaching at FIU in 2014, I have been welcomed into the community with open arms. I could not imagine myself in a better place. FIU has become the foundation from which I can reach my greatest potential professionally, but even more important it is where I can best serve the environment and my community.”
