Lizzy Servito

Designer

Lizzy Servito holds a Master of Landscape Architecture and Certificate in Urban Design from the University of Pennsylvania Stuart Weitzman School of Design. During graduate studies she held multiple teaching assistant positions and worked as a Research Fellow for PennPraxis, collaborating with Ramapough Lenape Turtle Clan leadership to survey and document Ceremonial Stone Landscapes in central New Jersey. In this position, she learned the values of indigenous history and culture in the landscape and how plants, rocks, and animals are our oldest teachers – knowledge that guides much of her design work today. This ongoing work is to be published in the second edition of Our Land, Our Stories, which delves into the environmental justice story of the Clan. Lizzy was also part of a design team for the LA+ CREATURE competition, and their award-winning project is published in LA+ Interdisciplinary Journal of Landscape Architecture. Prior to graduate studies, Lizzy received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting and Printmaking from Virginia Commonwealth University, where she interned at 1708 Gallery and co-founded Mist Gallery, an online art space for emerging artists.
