A. Gavin Zeitz (b. 1990) is a landscape architect, researcher, and educator based in Somerville, MA. Originally from Maine, he became interested in coastal landscapes in extreme climates and has pursued this interest throughout his work. He holds a B.S. in Environmental Studies from the University of Vermont, and received a Masters of Landscape Architecture (MLA) from RISD in 2018. While at RISD he was awarded the Architecture Studies Travel award where he surveyed the landscape conditions of peri-urban Alaska. He then went on to receive the Maharam Fellowship, the Lowthorpe traveling fellowship, and the Landscape Architecture Outstanding Thesis award. This allowed him to further his studies of northern landscape typologies in Iceland and Greenland. Gavin’s work and writing has been exhibited at Brown’s Granoff Center, Dutch Design Week, Nature Magazine, and Ground UP Journal. He is an associate designer at LANDING Studio and also an adjunct professor in the RISD Landscape Architecture Department.
