Having thought at length about abstract space during her previous mathematical studies, Krista now thinks about the space we inhabit. In both mathematics and landscape architecture, notions of space extend beyond three dimensions. Krista is interested in how her mathematical understanding of geometry and dynamical systems theory may meaningfully contribute to contemporary landscape architectural practice.
