We’re excited to announce that Mandi Fung has been promoted to Associate at Land Collective! Her dedicated leadership and thoughtful design approach exemplify our Studio’s values and we’re thankful to have her guidance.
She has led many of the studio’s projects involving culturally significant landscapes, developing design solutions that celebrate their past while adapting to present and future needs. Most recently, she has led the design of the Read House & Gardens, a National Historic Landmark re-envisioned to meet the present needs of a broader community while engaging with a rich and layered history of the site. Other recent projects include the Winterthur Museum, Garden & Library Visitor’s Center, the National World War I Memorial/Pershing Park Rehabilitation, and the SCUP-awarded University of Pittsburgh Hillside Framework Plan.
We’re incredibly lucky to get to work with Mandi everyday and are looking forward to collaborating with her in her new position!
