Dr. Carl Smith is a Professor of Landscape Architecture at the Fay Jones School of Architecture & Design at the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville. He is also a Visiting Professor of Architecture at the University of Sheffield, and a Chartered Landscape Architect in the UK. His recent recognitions include the Council of Educators in Landscape Architecture Award of Excellence in Studio Teaching (Senior Level); the Garden Communicators International Green Medal for sustainability writing; the Award of Merit for services to architecture and planning from the Arkansas Chapter of the American Institute of Architects; and elevation to Fellow of both the Royal Society of Arts and the Royal Geographical Society – both in London. His work focuses on the intersection between anthropogenic landscape and urban change, and the values and beliefs of those affected. Ultimately his twin aims are to inculcate and sharpen a sense of place-consciousness within himself and his students, and to understand place-consciousness as it relates to the sustainability and resiliency of landscapes and cities in Arkansas and beyond. Carl has also served as a visiting professor or critic at a number of design institutions domestically and internationally, while his scholarship has received a number of national and international awards and has been recognized through appointments at the Dumbarton Oaks Research Center and Library at Harvard University, the British School at Athens, and the American Academy in Rome.
