Christine E. Ten Eyck, FASLA
President, Ten Eyck Landscape Architects
Landscape architect Christine Ten Eyck is founding principal of Ten Eyck Landscape Architects based in Austin, Texas and previously in Phoenix, Arizona. During her career of over 35 years, Ms. Ten Eyck has drawn upon her intuition and knowledge to build a body of work celebrates the inherent beauty of Texas and the southwest, the culture of its people, and the sacred path of water, pioneering contemporary regionalism in the southwest. Her work illustrates the capacity for place-based landscape architecture to address pressing global issues such as climate, habitat, and water quality protection, while also creating restorative outdoor environments that are infused with natural beauty, encourage social interaction, and foster human healing. This ethos is exemplified in the recently constructed 11.5-acre Campus Transformation Project for The University of Texas at El Paso, the first USGBC Sustainable Sites-certified project in the world.
Ms. Ten Eyck received her Bachelor of Landscape Architecture from Texas Tech University. She became a Fellow of the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) in 2003 and is a registered landscape architect in Arizona, Oklahoma, New Mexico, and Texas. Committed to advancing both landscape architectural practice and education, Ms. Ten Eyck has lectured at various conferences and institutions, including Stanford University, The University of Texas at Austin, The University of Arizona, and Arizona State University. She was the keynote speaker for the 2013 Washington State ASLA Conference, presented at the Australian Institute of Landscape Architects in 2011, and most recently at the conference “Paisajismo en zonas aridas” in Santiago, Chile.
