Claire Napawan’s research focuses on urban public open spaces and their role within the evolving city. In light of economic, social, and environmental changes within urban environments, Professor Napawan has an interest in investigating the roles in which landscapes might adapt to provide ever-increasing productive, multi-productive and infrastructural programs to the global city. This includes investigation of the emerging role of urban agriculture in American cities to address a range of contemporary urban issues, and the role of landscape design to address adaptation to climate change impacts.
