Andreea Vasile-Hoxha is Romanian architectural and landscape architectural designer whose interest lies between the intersection of geology, biology, ecology, horticulture, and landscape architecture in the context of the (post-)Anthropocene.
Her research and practice agenda focus on deeply understanding the perpetually changing ecosystems surrounding us, while pushing the boundaries of the traditional methods of deploying the designs into the built environment. Her thesis, “After Plastics: The Gardens of the Glacial Foreland”, questions the potential emergence of microplastic particles in the most remote, pristine places on Earth over the next two centuries and the imminent implications on landscape systems and their formation through parallels between geological and biological time scales. Her current work further expands on a series of studies around designing and fabricating with novel material ecologies of the post-Anthropocene, which has been funded by a research grant from Harvard Graduate School of Design.
Andreea practiced at Rossetti in Detroit and BIG in New York City. She holds a Bachelor of Science in Architecture from Lawrence Technological University and a Master of Landscape Architecture from Harvard Graduate School of Design, where she was named the 2020 Gregory S. Baldwin Fellow. Her work has been publicized in “GSD Platform 11: Setting the Table” and featured on the GSD website.
