Zihao Zhang is a designer, educator, and scholar in landscape architecture. Through building transdisciplinary, critical analyses across design, engineering, and environmental humanities, his work interrogates the ramifications of cybernetics on contemporary culture and the constructed environment. As a landscape theorist, he provides critical analyses of the entanglement between nature and technology, the human and nonhuman realms, as well as ecosystems and intelligent machines. His design experiments inspire innovative landscape strategies to address pressing issues such as the climate crisis and social injustice, along with their cumulative effects on communities and urban landscapes. 

Zihao Zhang currently serves as an assistant professor and interim director of the landscape architecture program at the City College of New York Spitzer School of Architecture.  He holds a PhD in the Constructed Environment and Master of Landscape Architecture from the University of Virginia, and a Bachelor of Engineering in Landscape Architecture from Beijing Forestry University.
