Curriculum Vita Summary

Robert Hewitt, ASLA, is an Associate Professor of Landscape Architecture at Clemson University.  He is currently the lead landscape architecture faculty with the School of Architecture’s professional graduate program in health care design.  He teaches urban design, interdisciplinary design, community design, site design, planning and architecture special studies and seminars, as well as design implementation.  He is the Professor of Record for the College of Architecture Arts and the Humanities’ Rome Program.  He is a principal in HewittNassar Studio working on a wide range of projects in the United States and Egypt.  His professional experience includes work with Peter Walker and Partners in Berkeley on a range of international and national projects, and with Gary Strang and Michael Roche in San Francisco.  He is a registered landscape architect in California and South Carolina.

His research interests include the influence of medicine on environmental design, sustainability and health, and international education in landscape architecture.  His has authored more than 25 peer reviewed articles and co-chaired three international conferences during the last ten years; and his work has been cited or reviewed in more than 60 national and international publications.  During this time he has been investigator or co-investigator for more than $200,000 of funded grants.  He has authored two conference proceedings and is currently editing a collection of essays for Clemson University Press titled Landscape Imprints.

Awards

Professor Hewitt is the recipient of more than 25 awards for professional practice, teaching, research and service.  He has received awards from the College of Arts and Architecture at Penn State for the best peer-reviewed article of the year; from Clemson University for faculty excellence; from the Council of Educators in Landscape Architecture in recognition of excellence in teaching, research and service; from the Governor of Luxor Egypt and from Ain Shams University, Cairo for his work on the redesign of Luxor and the Avenue of the Sphinxes; an Award of Excellence from the American Society of Landscape Architects and an Award of Honorable Mention from Landscape Architecture Magazine for the exhibition  “Waterworks;” an Award of Merit from the American Society of Landscape Architects for the study of landscape architecture; and the Thomas Church Prize, from Department of Landscape Architecture, University of California, Berkeley.  He has most recently been awarded a North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia Tri-State ASLA award for his work on the Luxor, Egypt Master Plan, and was a finalist for the Rome Prize in Landscape Architecture 2008.

Health, Environment, Representation and Interpretation

His research and scholarly activities concerning the influence of medical thought on environmental design have centered on the historical aspects of that influence, and the design of contemporary healthy environments that integrate medical geography and cultural interpretation.  Published peer-reviewed and cited work examining the influence of medical thought on F L Olmsted design has appeared in the journals: The Bulletin of the History of Medicine, The Bulletin of Anesthesia History, and Psychiatry on Line Italia.  Research addressing the influence of international medical thought on 19th-century cities and parks has been published in the peer-reviewed journals Landscape Review, and CELA Selected Papers 2005, and 2010.  Examples of research regarding the influences of medical thought on contemporary environments related to cultural interpretation and landscape epidemiology have also been published in CELA Select Papers 2005 and Landscape Review.  A collaborative project suggesting that the incorporation of landscape images from dreams is useful from the standpoint of evolutionary biology for the creation of more healthy and sustainable environments was published in Landscape Forum 

His creative and professional activity concerning health and design include continuing national and international consultation on healthcare facility design, including: the application therapeutic design principles for resort design in Vallkenburg, Holland and Shanghai, China: for healthcare facilities at Greenville Hospital’s Alzhiemer’s Facility, Spartanberg Hospital’s Health Care Village, and for the Medical University of South Carolina campus; the application of therapeutic design principles that incorporate non-Western medical approaches to health care design was employed at the Sharm al Sheik Neurological Center in Egypt.  Creative and professional activity that blends sustainability, health and the environment includes: sustainable and healthy neighborhood design proposals for the City of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; sustainable and healthy community design proposals for Lake Conestee and Simpsonville, South Carolina; and Clemson University’s “Green” Community Health Care Center. 

His work concerning landscape representation and interpretation, expressed through in four exhibitions, the San Francisco Garden Show “Waterworks,” San Francisco Arts Commission, Exploration City Site: “Civic Center Viewing Chamber,” The Public Art Fund, New York, Gardens in the City Series,” and “Climate Change Garden” at the Late Show Garden Exposition in Sonoma. “Steam Temple.”  “Waterworks” explored sustainable design expression related to the interconnection of natural systems and urban infrastructure.  “Steam Temple” addressed these same issues related to the establishment of a new infrastructure park within the Allen Street Mall in Lower Manhattan as part of a project sponsored by New York’s Public Art Fund.  “Civic Center Viewing Chamber,” examines cultural perceptions and representations of the landscape using historic viewing devices to reconsider the environmental setting of San Francisco’s Beaux-Arts Civic Center.

Landscape Architecture International Education

His research and scholarship related to landscape architecture international education has examined international education at CELA participating universities, internationalization and multiculturalism.  He recently published comprehensive studies of landscape architecture international education in Landscape Journal and in Landscape Review.  His work concerning international education extends to teaching and service activities, and to recent publications concerning international landscape architecture design and globalization. (Critiques of Built Works of Landscape Architecture and in CELA Published Papers 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010).  Related to his research and scholarship, he has been active in grant writing, participating in grant development, as a co-investigator, and advisor; and has been particularly active in the development of international projects, including projects in Luxor, Egypt. 

Teaching and Service

While he has assumed a wide range of teaching and service activities, including:

  1. Teaching basic design, site design, community design, technical courses, urban design and interdisciplinary design at graduate and undergraduate levels,
  2. Chairing the department curriculum committee during the development of its Masters and PhD programs, organizing Clemson’s symposium on leadership in landscape architecture for the Landscape Futures Initiative, and editing Clemson’s CELA Select Conference Papers,

His teaching and service activities have broadly focused on international education and interdisciplinary collaboration.  He has co-organized conferences and workshops with La Sapienza and Roma Tre Universities in Rome.  He has been an invited participant in four national and international panels on international education, and is currently working on the internationalization of Clemson’s landscape architecture program, having acted as an analyst for the department concerning its role in the College’s Genoa program, its Barcelona program, Istanbul program, and its St Petersburg program.  He has co-developed an exchange program between Clemson University and Ains Shams University, Cairo, and is currently developing a semester study abroad program for landscape architecture in Rome, Italy.
