Tucker is a designer from rural Indiana with an excitement and fascination for the social implications of design. He is interested in the intersections of social and natural systems, and how these intersections can be facilitated by the designed and built environment. His rural upbringing has given him a particular sensitivity to the implications of disconnected communities.
While earning a Bachelor’s of Science in Landscape Architecture with a minor in Horticulture from Purdue University, Tucker maintained involvement in a range of activities including serving as President of the Purdue Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects, as a student ambassador for Purdue’s College of Agriculture, completing a yearlong co-op experience with SWT Design in St. Louis, Missouri, and studying abroad in both Italy and England. His dedication to learning earned him an ASLA Academic Honor Award and the title of 2019 Olmsted Scholar for Purdue University.
Tucker enjoys cooking, painting, hiking, running, and trying new things. He is excited for a new adventure in Houston.
