Jane Hutton is a landscape architect, whose research looks at the expanded relations of material practice in design, examining links between the sources and installations of common building materials. She used her time as a fellow continuing work on a book manuscript, Reciprocal Landscapes: Cases in Material Movements, that traces five seminal landscape materials that ended up in New York City over the past century (due out in the fall of 2019). She organized and prepared photographs and images for the book, and submitted the manuscript while in residence. Recent publications of hers include an edited volume, Landscript 5: Material Culture, which looks at the role of materialist perspectives on landscape design, and Wood Urbanism: From the Molecular to the Territorial, co-edited with Daniel Ibanez and Kiel Moe, that looks at the multi-scalar impacts and potentials of wood construction. Hutton is a co-founding editor of the journal Scapegoat: Architecture, Landscape, Political Economy, a summer 2019 research fellow at the Canadian Centre for Architecture in Montreal, and an assistant professor in the Department of Architecture at the University of Waterloo.



Jane Hutton worked in the Mansfield studio.
