Richard L. Hindle

Richard L. Hindle is Assistant Professor of Landscape Architecture at the University of California, Berkeley, where he teaches courses in ecological technology, planting design, and site design. Professor Hindle’s research focuses on technology in the garden and landscape with an emphasis on material processes, innovation, and patents. His current research explores innovation in landscape related technologies across a range of scales, from large-scale mappings of riverine and coastal patents to detailed historical studies on the antecedents of vegetated architectural systems. This research is the subject of an exhibition and forthcoming book titled Geographies of Innovation: Vanguard Landscape Technology and Infrastructure from the United States Patent Archive.
