Brett Milligan is a professor of landscape architecture and environmental design at the University of California, Davis. There he is the director of the Metamorphic Landscapes Lab, which prototypes adaptations to conditions of accelerated climatic and environmental change through fieldwork-based practices and transdisciplinary design research. Much of his work is based in California, reworking colonial legacies of land reclamation, water infrastructure and fire suppression.
