- Incorporating art and stories into the iterative design process
- Acknowledging that we all work on stolen land
Story Wiggins is landscape designer with a background in historic preservation, gardening and land stewardship. Her intuitive approach to design varies by project, but aims always to honor the land, exercise restraint, and encourage growth and evolution. She is a partner in Terremoto’s San Francisco office, where she leads projects of various scales and types, including high-end residential, commercial and agricultural. Story is co-lead of Terremoto’s ‘Land and Labor’ internal working group, which advocates for the building and gardening trades and tradespeople that make our projects possible.
Hyunch Sung (she, her) is an artist and landscape designer who has had the pleasure of working with and learning from various communities – LGBTQ, foster youth, formerly incarcerated women, and the unhoused. She has taught urban studios on how to support underrepresented communities at USC & Cal Poly Pomona, and is a visiting critic at UC Berkeley. Hyunch believes in feelings, listening, materiality, stories, and kbbq as tools for idiosyncratic design. She is curious about the experiences of cultural synaesthesia and translation.
