USC Appoints New Director of MLA Program

Hirsch was granted funds by The Graham Foundation, which awards grants to individuals whose projects will make a meaningful impact on the architecture field as a whole, both in 2019 and 2013.


The University of Southern California School of Architecture has announced the appointment of associate professor Alison Hirsch as the new director of the Master of Landscape Architecture + Urbanism program, effective August 2019.

Hirsch received her Master's of Landscape Architecture, Master's of Historic Preservation and Ph.D. in Architecture from the University of Pennsylvania.

She is the co-editor of a book of essays by James Corner, titled The Landscape Imagination, and is currently working on a book titled The Performative Landscape.
