Current Winner

Tiffany Kaewen Dang

Originally from Edmonton, Alberta, territorial scholar Tiffany Kaewen Dang holds a Master’s degree in Landscape Architecture from the Harvard University Graduate School of Design, and has recently been admitted to the Geography PhD program at the University of Cambridge. Her research focuses on the Canadian National Parks System as a colonial infrastructure of racial oppression and territorial conquest, under the premise that if landscape architecture has a continuing role in the colonization of what is today known as Canada, then the subversion of traditional landscape architectural methodologies can be utilized for decolonization. She is currently conducting research as a part of the OPSYS Landscape Infrastructure Lab.
