Professor of Architecture, Syracuse University School of Architecture
Julia Czerniak recieved a Research Master of Architecture degree from the Glasgow School of Art and a Master of Architecture degree from Princeton University, which she attended as a Jacob Javits Fellow. She has been an assistant professor of architecture at Syracuse University since 1995. Principle of the Czerniak/Linder Studio, she has been the landscape architect for a number of projects (as consultant to Kieran Timberlake Associates) including Hamilton Village at the University of Pennsylvania, Pennsylvania State University Child Care Facility, and the Centre County/Pennsylvania State Visistors Center, both at State College, Pennsylvania. The primary element of the exterior space for this center is a “flexible field,” which responds to and accommodates “fluctuating cycles of campus and county events and visitation, and daily and seasonal use of ‘fields’ for pasture, parking, tailgaiting, intramurals, and agriculture.” The firm has also entered a number of recent design competitions including a plan for Governors Island and for Petrosino Park. Czerniak has frequently presented and published her work and ongoing research, most recently in “Making urbanism specific: speculations On Site,” which will be published in Landscape Urbanism.
