Sophia Mizouni

Sophia Mizouni's work focuses mostly on historic landscapes. As part of her research work she investigates historical traces found on urban sites and explores different ways of preserving and enhancing their unique cultural heritage. Within this field she teaches and conducts research on the historical underpinnings of design theory as a way to explore how landscapes express cultural attitudes towards nature and human beings. Mizouni is currently completing her Doctorate at Boston University with a research focusing on the depictions of the Parisian landscape in the 19th-century novels. In addition to this research, she is actively involved with teaching students interested in community-based projects, place identity, design histories and narrative landscapes.

Sophia continues to practice professionally in residential and community projects. She worked at Payette Architects in Boston, MA where she was responsible for preparing schematic designs, construction documents and planting plans which focus on the use of the native species for several campus projects including Georgetown University in Washington, DC. Prior to joining Payette, she was fortunate to be part of the design team of Ann P. Stokes Landscape Architects in Norfolk, Virginia and worked on landscape designs for historic buildings such as 19th century residences and the neoclassical Chrysler Museum of Art in Norfolk.

Sophia received her Bachelor in Landscape Architecture from the University of Montreal in May 2001 and her Masters degree in Landscape Architecture from the University of Guelph, Canada in May 2005. Her thesis work on historically inspired design won her the W.E Coates Memorial Scholarship awarded for scholarship and commitment to the profession of landscape architecture. She has been a core faculty member at the Boston Architecture College since 2009.
