Assistant Professor in Landscape Architecture
Liz Camuti, PLA, is a landscape architect and tenure-track Assistant Professor. Her work focuses on design for climate adaptation, with an emphasis on reimagining working and highly engineered landscapes in the Gulf Coast region as sites of ecological cohabitation.
Liz’s expertise is in visual storytelling and geospatial representation aimed at effectively communicating complex ecological, economic, and social systems to public audiences as part of an engaged design process.
She previously worked at SCAPE Landscape Architecture in New Orleans, where she both led and contributed to interdisciplinary teams developing landscape strategies and innovative infrastructure for public projects at multiple scales. She has previously taught landscape architecture, urban design, and digital media courses at the Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation and the University of Virginia.
Liz earned her Master of Landscape Architecture from the University of Virginia, where she received the ASLA Certificate of Honor and was named the 2018 National Graduate Olmsted Scholar by the Landscape Architecture Foundation (LAF). After graduating, she continued her research through the LAF Fellowship for Innovation and Leadership, investigating how practitioners might break historical cycles of erasure and control that have shaped community design in coastal Louisiana.
Liz also holds a Bachelor of Science in International Agriculture and Rural Development from Cornell University, where she was an Editor for the Cornell Daily Sun and a manager of Cornell’s Student-Run Organic Farm.
