Walter Hood is the Creative Director and Founder of Hood Design Studio in Oakland, CA. He is a professor at the University of California, Berkeley and lectures on projects nationally and internationally. Hood Design Studio is tripartite practice, working across art + fabrication, design + landscape, and research + urbanism. Resulting urban spaces and their objects act as public sculpture, creating new apertures through which to see the surrounding emergent beauty and idiosyncrasies. The Studio’s award winning work has been featured in publications including Dwell, The Wall Street Journal, The NY Times, Fast Company, Architectural Digest, Places Journal, and Landscape Architecture Magazine.
