Hannah Greendorfer

Hannah completed her B.A. at Skidmore College with an Environmental Studies major and Geoscience minor. In 2018, she received her MLA from UC Berkeley. During her undergraduate career, Hannah became increasingly interested in urbanization and the design of cities. She was admitted to the International Honors Program, “Cities in the 21st Century” and traveled internationally to compare sustainable environments and planning strategies in densely populated areas. The urban renewal and restoration projects in each area fascinated her, as did the many distinctive cultures. As a graduate student, she interned with the Bureau of Street-Use and Mapping at San Francisco Department of Public Works, Design Workshop in Los Angeles, and at Mithun-Solomon in San Francisco. In addition to working towards her Masters of Landscape Architecture at UC Berkeley, Hannah worked as a nonprofit educator, assisting with exhibit design and creating strategies for drawing visitors into specific learning spaces. Hannah is particularly interested in the interplay of people and space and feels strongly that adaptable, place-specific design solutions are the core of healthy and socially responsible design.

Kai Ng

Kai received his BA in Landscape Architecture from UC Berkeley and his Masters in Landscape Architecture from the Harvard Graduate School of Design; his studies emphasized the connection between communities and their shared spaces in an urban environment. Growing up in the immense urban density of Hong Kong inspired him to create landscapes on a human scale. Kai is also interested in the application of technology in landscape architecture. His senior research project, “Into the Fogscape” merged narratives and data with landscape in an augmented reality environment creating a synthetic vision that alters the experience of fog and its ecological values. 

Prior to joining PWP, Kai worked as a video producer and motion graphics designer. His animated work has been featured in the documentary: Black Holes: The Edge of All We Know. Other work was exhibited at venues such as Venice Architecture Biennale, Wrightwood 659 Gallery, Art Institute of Chicago, Philadelphia Museum of Art and Walker Art Center.
