Phoebe White

Phoebe White is an assistant professor of landscape architecture in the school of architecture at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa. Her research considers the cultural and ecological complexities of urban water systems and the evolving narratives of these systems as they adapt to extreme weather events. Her design process emphasizes the agency of projective mapping with particular focus on its role in mediating between the latent histories of site and emergent climate risk.
