Landscape Architecture College of Design




Teaching Specialist Jessica Rossi-Mastracci

  • BA in Architecture, Washington University in St. Louis
  • MLA, University of Pennsylvania

Jessica is a landscape designer, associate at TEN x TEN, and the HWS Cleveland Fellow in Landscape Architecture for 2017–2018. Her interests in design embrace both the theoretical and practical, as academic and professional projects have expanded on the exploration of program, connectivity, time, and landscape, working from the territorial scale down to detail design. Jessica is interested in urban interventions that tackle ecological issues, leverage site potentials into new forms of urban places, navigate current and antiquated infrastructure, and can become new civic armatures for cities.

Prior to moving to Minneapolis, she has lived and worked in Houston, St. Louis, Copenhagen, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Rotterdam, and San Francisco.
