New Faculty: Teresa Galí-Izard
Associate Professor of Landscape Architecture
Teresa Galí-Izard has worked since 1989 as a designer of numerous private and urban gardens, parks, landscape interventions, nature restorations, and urban planning and management. She set up her own landscape architecture office in 1995, and in 2007 founded Arquitectura Agronomía with Jordi Nebot—who is also joining the Architecture School faculty in 2012.
From 1989 to 2003, Galí served as a freelance architect for Batlle i Roig Arquitectes in Barcelona, and she often collaborates with other studios on projects. Her many competition prizes include the European Urban Public Space Award, the Mediterranean Landscape Prize, and winner in the Energy Waste Recycling category at the World Architecture Festival for the collaborative Can Joan Dumpsite Recovery project (with Nebot). In her work, she seeks new ways to focus projects with materials from nature.
Galí has taught in the master’s program in landscape architecture and environment at the Escuela Técnica Superior in Madrid. Her book The Same Landscapes: Ideas and Interpretations (2006) compiles observations about interesting landscape situations, gathered over a decade, from the vantage point of planning and management.
Galí was trained as an agricultural technical engineer and earned her postgraduate degree in gardening and landscape at the School of Architecture of Barcelona, Polytechnic University of Catalonia.
