TCLF Welcomes Our 2020 Fellows
TCLF is pleased to welcome Anna Enderle and Kevan Klosterwill to its 2020 Fellowship Program. Anna joins The Cultural Landscape Foundation as a Cultural Landscape Fellow.
Anna has focused her career on her passion for creating safe, welcoming public spaces. Originally from rural Ohio, Anna graduated from the University of Cincinnati in 2009 with a Bachelor of Urban Planning Degree. Through UC’s co-op program, she interned as an urban planner with the City of Mason, Ohio, Design Collective, Inc. in Baltimore, and Perkins Eastman in Pittsburgh. After graduating, Anna worked as Assistant Planner for the City of Sandusky, Ohio, on the western basin of Lake Erie. While in Sandusky, she specialized in zoning and planning administration, public planning projects, and managing the city’s Community Development Block Grant funds. After almost 4 years with Sandusky, Anna moved to Cleveland and began working for Ohio City Incorporated – a non-profit Community Development Corporation. At OCI, her work focused on community and residential development – helping residents and developers navigate Cleveland’s permitting process, organizing public meetings, and managing the neighborhood’s design review process.
Anna received her Masters of Landscape Architecture degree from Kent State in 2019. While at KSU, she focused her studies on public spaces, blending her experience in community development and city planning with Kent’s landscape program, based in downtown Cleveland. During her last year at Kent, she worked primarily on a capstone project, focusing on human perspective and experience in the landscape as a tool for site analysis, using Phenomenology – the philosophy of human perception and embodiment – to shape her research. Anna currently works as a landscape designer at DERU Landscape Architecture in Cleveland. Her work at DERU encompasses all stages of project development, from initial schematic designs and planting plans to developing construction documents.
As part of her fellowship with TCLF, Anna will be working on developing What’s Out There Cleveland Guide, researching and documenting Cleveland’s significant landscapes. She also contributed to the development of Landslide 2020: Women Take the Lead.
Kevan is the Oberlander Prize Research Associate. He recently completed a PhD in the Constructed Environment at the University of Virginia and holds a BLA and MLA from the University of Georgia. Kevan's research focuses on both historical and contemporary approaches to landscape-making, especially exploring the links between localized practices of caring for and relating to other species, plant and animal, and the imagination of regional or planetary space associated with those practices. His writing has appeared in Landscape Journal, the Journal of Architectural Education, and Landscape Architecture Magazine.
In his role with TCLF, Kevan is working with Oberlander Prize curator John Beardsley to document the expansive collection of nominees from around the world identified by experts in the field and the academy. This documentation will support the work of the Prize's jury in narrowing down the field and selecting an inaugural recipient, a process slated to begin next spring.
