Sean Burkholder is Assistant Professor of Landscape and Urban Design at the University at Buffalo. Sean’s work coalesces around issues particularly characteristic of the Great Lakes region; including urban vacancy, fresh-water ecosystems, infrastructural re-purposing, dredge material management and the urban/water interface.
This work comes in the form of published research, design projects, public engagement and instructed student work. Underpinning this work is a particular interest in the way in which substrate and ecology influence the urban landscape and how these systems are interpreted by others. Sean holds a degree in Architecture from Miami University and a master’s degree of Landscape Architecture from the Harvard Graduate School of Design.
