Ian Quate


Ian earned his Bachelor of Art and Design from North Carolina State University in 2006 and his Master of Landscape Architecture from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2011. His interest in urban infrastructure x wildlife grew from a semester in Galapagos, Ecuador, where he was immersed in conflicting issues of settlement, tourism, and human ecology in an isolated wildlife park of global significance. This intellectual thread continued through his degree in Landscape Architecture, where he explored the possibilites of ecological expression and biological carrying capacity in industrial landscapes. Since moving to New York, Ian has worked in design, fabrication and gardening, with projects revolving around the cultural integration of ecology and its manifestation in construction.
