You can see a collection of Robert Buchanan’s images and art on our portfolio page.

Richard Horner

Richard Horner is an environmental engineer who works with faculty and students in Landscape Architecture to provide a scientific and technical viewpoint in research and design projects involving urban water resources. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Washington’s Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering and previous engineering degrees from the University of Pennsylvania. Professor Horner splits his time between university research and private practice. In both cases his work concerns how human occupancy of and activities on the landscape affect natural waters, and how negative effects can be reduced. He is not presently teaching in the classroom but advises students in his affiliated departments in graduate thesis and independent study work.

He is currently working on a biography of Lockwood deForest, Jr., an important and little known landscape architect whose practice in Santa Barbara from 1920 until 1949 anticipated many aspects of modernism and regionally approriate plantmanship.

Anne Vernez Moudon

Professor Moudon instructs students in urban design and research methods.
She is President of the International Seminar on Urban Morphology (ISUF),
an international and interdisciplinary organization of scholars and practitioners;

1995). Dr. Moudon has been an active participant in The Mayors’ Institute
on City Design since 1992. She has consulted for many communities nationally
and internationally to develop urban design guidelines for new construction
which respect the character of the existing landscape and built environment
and which support non-motorized transportation. She has worked with planning
officials, design professionals, and neighborhood groups in the Puget Sound
as well as in San Francisco, CA, Toronto and Montreal, Canada, Stockholm,
