Elise Misao Hunchuck
Elise Misao Hunchuck (b. tkaronto/Toronto) is a Berlin-based researcher, editor, and educator trained in landscape architecture (MLA, Daniels), philosophy and geography (B.A., Hons, University of Toronto). Her transdisciplinary practice documents and explores co-constitutive relationships between materials, resources, infrastructures, natural processes, humans and more-than-humans of charismatic landscapes in the service of trying to develop a deeper understanding of risk—how it is understood, how it might be responded to, and especially how it can be flattened or erased in landscape practices.
Elise is a Visiting Lecturer and Tutor for ADS 7 (MA Architecture) at the Royal College of Art School of Architecture (London), a Senior Researcher and Lecturer at The Bartlett School of Architecture (London), and an editorial board member for the journal Scapegoat: Architecture/Landscape/Political Economy. She is currently the editorial curator for transmediale 2021–22.
