Hana Georg
Senior Designer
Hana is originally from Los Angeles, a drought-prone city that sparked an ongoing curiosity about water in the urban landscape and the socio-economic infrastructure that surrounds it. Growing up collecting tadpoles from the LA River, playing along the rim of dams and reservoirs, and marveling at the City’s cascading aqueducts are experiences that continue to influence their approach to both research and design. The presence of water in a city embodies some of the most intimate aspects of public space and applying it in just and sustainable ways provides ongoing inspiration to their design practice.

Hana received a Bachelor of Arts in Feminist Studies from the University of California at Santa Cruz, and later worked as a carpenter in Oakland and an electrician with the IBEW Local 3 in New York City. They have also worked as a radio journalist and documentarian, and as an intern and design consultant for the Gowanus Canal Conservancy. Their art practice focuses on large installations of reused construction material, which have been shown at the Queens Museum, and they enjoy making outlandish lamps out of found objects.

Hana completed their Master of Landscape Architecture at the Anne and Bernard Spitzer School of Architecture at City College of New York. They interned at MVVA in 2018 and joined full-time in 2019.
