Kyra Baldwin (BA 2014) grew up in Berkeley in a house stocked with paper, pencils and tape. Her grandfathers made beautiful objects out of trash; her grandmother restored urban creeks.
Outside of her current work at a landscape design-build firm, she draws and writes about her local landscape, from coastal bluffs to mazes of city and freeway.
In all of her work, she observes and reacts to environmental qualities – light, space, moisture, – and the state of the people around her. The practice of landscape architecture seeks to make rational sense of these reactions and observations, but artwork is free to have loose ends.
