Justin Malcore is a landscape designer with a passion for resilient design for South Louisiana and an interest in utilizing emerging technology in Landscape Architecture. He grew up surrounded by computers and enjoys tinkering with new design software to explore how he can incorporate it into his workflow.
Justin graduated from the Robert Reich School of Landscape Architecture at LSU as a Distinguished Communicator and earned a minor in Horticulture. He worked with Reich Landscape Architecture for two years during school, giving him a more well-rounded perspective on Landscape Architecture practice upon graduation.
As a native of Baton Rouge, Justin wants to contribute to the further improvement of the city; he wants to help make the city more durable against regular flooding through resilient design strategies, including responsible green infrastructure. His capstone thesis involved proposing a new way of planning neighborhoods in Baton Rouge to reduce flooding impacts on homes and watersheds, improve the health and well-being of community members, and how developers and homebuyers could be incentivized to prefer those kinds of communities.
