Michael Wideman

Designer

Michael Wideman earned a Master of Landscape Architecture from University of Toronto and a Bachelor’s of Environmental Studies Honours degree in urban design from University of Waterloo. He interned at Public Work in Toronto and, as a graduate research assistant, helped develop nature-based strategies for managing sea level rise for the US Army Corps’ Engineering with Nature initiative. Stemming from his academic and personal work, Michael has particular interest in emergent ecologies and winter landscapes; he also has special interest in the theoretical links between religion, perceptions of time, and the moralization of nature, as well as their implications for landscape management and design practice. At RH, he is working primarily on a large-scale, multi-year residential design project in Maine.
