This fall semester, PLOT Studio's TJ Marston will be teaching three courses in FIU's Landscape Architecture, Environmental + Urban Design Program :
This summer PLOT Studio's TJ Marston worked with incoming students in FIU's Landscape Architecture and Interior Design programs. She taught both Visual Notations and Design Foundations Studio, each an intensive 6 week foundation course where students developed critical toolsets in graphics and the design process.
Student models from Design Foundations explore ways to measure and understand dynamic phenomenal processes which transform space (evaporation, heat, movement, growth, erosion, noise, etc). They used their in-depth studies to explore design interventions which catalyze those dynamic processes and allow for adaptive solutions to design problems.
The Final Review for the Graduate Design 2 Studio at FIU's Landscape Architecture, Environmental, and Urban Design Program (LAEUD) was held on April 12, 2018 at FIU's main campus. This semester the students explored the future of golf in a city which is challenged by a low demand for the sport, increased cost of golf course maintenance, growing ecological concerns, and a lack of public space.
TJ Marston, Founder at PLOT Studio, was selected as a finalist for this years 2018 LAF Fellowship for Innovation and Leadership for her proposal exploring gender equity in the profession of landscape architecture.
