Rebecca (Becca) is an exceptional design leader working on several institutional and mixed use/multi-family residential projects at present. She completed her Master’s in Landscape Architecture at the Harvard Graduate School of Design prior to joining INTERSTICE, and brings several years of experience working in Landscape Architecture in the Bay Area prior to earning her MLA degree. Becca’s interest in the intersection of art, science and perception has led to the successful completion of community-activation projects for urban spaces in the Bay Area, where she contributed to The Studio for Public Spaces at the Exploratorium. At IA she currently designs and manages projects for community-oriented change and prototyping projects at various scales that lead to the embrace of larger changes in urban landscapes.
Her Bachelor’s Degree in Neuroscience led her to her passion for the environment and how it is perceived, with a focus on the multi-sensory systems of perception and the lesser-known areas of cognitive processing and proprioception – the understanding of where our body is in space without our visual input. Becca brings a steady persistence combined with a playful sense of humor to all of her work at IA.
