nikki chang

landscape design intern

Nikki has joined the dwg. team as a summer intern. She has a background in environmental studies and is currently pursuing her masters in landscape architecture at the University of Pennsylvania. Nikki's interest in landscape architecture stems from an interest in the interaction between nature and the built environment as well as the power of the public realm.

This has led her to an undergraduate thesis on oil's influence on the political and physical landscape of Houston, Texas (her hometown) as well as findings ways to position the landscape as the catalyst for positive urban change.

When not in studio, Nikki can be found walking around Philadelphia hoping to run into a cute dog or having wine dinner parties with friends.
