Amanda Santoro is a recent landscape architecture graduate new to BNIM’s planning and landscape studio, and she is interested in urban redevelopment and data-driven sustainable design. She believes from streetscapes to regional master planning, the built environment can become sustainable and active spaces that are framed through data-driven design decisions. In her work, she has had opportunities to transform large datasets into maps that communicate and analyze GIS data in ways that can inform decision-making and future designs. She really enjoys collaborating with other disciplines to help create holistic solutions and transform the built environment.
Amanda has been part of interdisciplinary teams awarded for their stormwater management and green infrastructure design solutions such as the national winner for 2013 EPA Rainworks Challenge and an ASLA award for K-State’s Campus Creek Re- Envisioned project.
