Biography

Professor Fox specializes in the areas of applied landscape architecture, urban design and site construction. Fox is a registered landscape architect with 15 year of experience in the landscape design and construction industry. His experience includes projects that range in scope from citywide transportation and urban design initiatives, to public parks and school sites, to small-scale design-build applications, to landscape architectural education.

Fox’s work is most interested in public landscapes and is significantly influenced by public involvement. More specifically, he is interested in the development of sustainable landscapes and their resultant impacts on cognitive, social, cultural and consumer behaviors. His teaching, research and outreach efforts include the design, development and study of naturalized educational environments, integration of low impact development strategies and context sensitive solutions at all scales, and the art and craft of construction detailing and implementation.

Notable projects include a 2006 American Institute of Architects (AIA) Committee on the Environment Top Ten Green Award (1 of 10 nationally) and the 2005 Council of Educational Facilities Planners International (CEFPI) James D. MacConnell Award for School Facility Excellence (in recognition of the top school facility development project in North America). Fox’s other significant awards include a Teaching Award for Outstanding Contributions from Louisiana State University’s College of Design, an ASLA Merit Award for Excellence in the Study of Landscape Architecture, and designation as a Clearing Scholar from The Clearing Landscape Institute.
