Ye Tian

Landscape Designer


Ye Tian comes to Starr Whitehouse from the Rhode Island School of Design, where she completed her Master’s in Landscape Architecture and worked for two years at RISD’s Nature Lab, using advanced digital technologies to map and visualize spatial data. Writing her thesis on redefining the urban sublime in abandoned post-industrial sites and revitalizing interstitial wilderness, Ye Tian approaches design from the standpoint of the whole urban context, focusing on the relationship between nature and spatial experience. With a background
in both landscape design and traditional artistic disciplines, she brings valuable digital and hand-based techniques to the Starr Whitehouse team’s workflow.
