Christine Chung: LAF Scholarship

Christine Chung, MLA’18, has been awarded a 2018 LAF Honor Scholarship in Memory of Joe Lalli, FASLA, by the Landscape Architecture Foundation. Her interest in cultural landscapes and urban communities was inspired during an undergraduate research project that questioned heritage preservation practices in Vancouver’s historic Chinatown. It advocated for place to be perceived not merely as a collection of physical artifacts, but also taking the form of oral histories, social practices and street life in between buildings. Ms. Chung intends to continue her engagement with on-the-ground projects designing for community heath, providing opportunities for civic participation in design processes, inspiring dialogue and tools for environmental stewardship and designing urban landscapes that allow for culture to live and breathe.
