Victoria Marshall is a licensed landscape architect, and the founder of Till Design, a Newark based landscape architecture office. She is also an Assistant Professor of Urban Design at The New School, New York. In 2010 she launched and directed the Urban Design BS Program, the first undergraduate urban design program in an art and design school in the United States.
Originally from Australia, Marshall completed her graduate studies at the University Of Pennsylvania in 1997 with a Masters of Landscape Architecture and Certificate in Urban Design. She recently completed an India China Institute Fellowship based on the theme Social Innovation for Sustainable Environments. In addition to participation in the academy, Marshall is engaged in collaborative research with ecologists that are reflected in numerous publications.
The goal of switching between these three modes: making landscapes, teaching, and collaborating is to bring broad fields of inquiry into Till Design. This is not just for personal curiosity; it is a strategic choice toward creating critical design practices for people and our cities.
