Katherine Jenkins is a lecturer in the Department of Landscape Architecture at Cornell University and cofounder of the design-research collaborative Topo-logic.
Her work explores how perception shapes modes of seeing, acting, and placemaking. Her practice engages with spatial aspects that are interstitial and overlooked, from the bizarre topographies of bubble economies to the ground beneath Arctic pipelines. She has conducted fieldwork from California’s agro-industrial valleys to Utah’s alkaline deserts to Alaska’s landscapes of extraction. She has an MLA degree from the University of Virginia and a BA from Yale University.
