Professional engagement

Hammaker is a landscape designer working across landscape scales from residential to regional.  He teaches foundational studios and digital representation. His design interests lie at the intersection of planning, landscape architecture, and the environment – finding holistic solutions to the complexities of large-scale contemporary issues of climate change, cultural identity, socioeconomic disparity, food systems, and environmental degradation, especially in the interstitial spaces between rural and urban communities.
