Walter Hood, Creative Director and Founder, Hood Design Studio
Born in North Carolina in 1958, Hood received a BA degree in landscape architecture from North Carolina A&T State University and an MA in architecture and landscape architecture from the University of California, Berkeley in 1989. He received an MFA in studio arts and sculpture from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Hood draws on his strong connection to the Black community in his work. In 1992, he founded Hood Design Studio in Oakland, which is a cultural practice working across art, fabrication, design, landscape, research, and urbanism. Hood creates urban spaces that resonate with and enrich the lives of communities while also honoring communal histories. His work melds architectural and fine arts expertise with a commitment to designing ecologically sustainable public spaces that empower marginalized communities. He is the recipient of numerous awards and Fellowships.
