Frank Hammond earned his Master of Landscape Architecture from the Rhode Island School of Design, and a Bachelor of Architecture from the University of Florida. Prior to joining the faculty of Kansas State, Frank was a Senior Designer with The Landscape Architecture office of Raymond Jungles in Miami, FL. During his time working with Raymond he held senior design roles on notable projects including the Ocean Terrace streetscape and park in North Miami Beach, the design and redevelopment of a Riverwalk and park along the Miami River, and a new waterfront development in Tampa. Additionally, Frank practiced architecture for nearly ten years in Kansas City, primarily in the office of Populous, designing large scale public projects, including the Marlins baseball stadium in Miami, FL.
Frank also held a teaching position at Roger Williams University in Rhode Island where he taught an introductory landscape course (Site and Environment), to 2nd year Architecture students. His teaching experience at The Rhode Island School of Design includes a Design/Build Studio in Costa Rica where students designed and constructed a classroom on the campus of Earth University that will be a prototype for sustainable building practices in Central America.
Frank Hammond was born and raised in Miami, Florida where he developed a passion for the raw natural environments of the nearby Everglades and Biscayne National Park. This relationship between the urban realm and wild subtropical landscapes of South Florida cultivated his interest in how cities can exist sustainably alongside fragile coastal ecologies. This research has manifested with an approach that seeks to work at the intersection of art, science, and cultural identity to find novel and innovative ways to merge art, architecture, and design to enhance the experience of public space.
