Hope Hui Rising went into environmental design from hydrology and hydraulic engineering in an attempt to resolve the tension between these two divergent approaches to water through the beauty and function of landscape urbanism. Her professional and academic work focuses on making livable and resilient places that facilitate environmental and climate adaptation. Having lived on four continents and been trained in performing and visual arts, she has been in search of ways to engender sustainability through archetypal aesthetic experiences. This passion transformed her into an award-winning public artist and landscape architect specializing in the design of light, water, and landscape in the public realm.

Over the last 15 years, Hope was involved with the design of outdoor light and water installations in mixed-use developments in South Korea and India, as well as several award-winning domestic landscape architecture and public art projects. Her diverse portfolio encompasses public parks and plazas, children's outdoor spaces, healthcare gardens, zoos and wildlife habitats, constructed wetlands, waterscapes in addition to academic and corporate campus planning and design. These projects received many awards, including three from the Society of Landscape Architects and four from the American Institute of Architects.
