Fox’s work is most interested in public landscapes and is significantly influenced by public involvement. More specifically, he is interested in the development of sustainable landscapes and their resultant impacts on cognitive, social, cultural and consumer behaviors. His teaching, research and outreach efforts include the design, development and study of naturalized educational environments, integration of low impact development strategies and context sensitive solutions at all scales, and the art and craft of construction detailing and implementation.
Professor Fox specializes in the areas of applied landscape architecture, urban design and site construction. He is a registered landscape architect having 15 years experience in the landscape architecture design and construction industry. His experience includes projects that range in scope from citywide transportation and urban design initiatives, to public parks and school sites, to small-scale design-build applications, to landscape architectural education.

The Richard C. Bell Lecture
We are very honored to name the first lecture in the 2012 -13 LAR Lecture Series for Mr. Richard C. Bell, FASLA, FAAR. Dick was awarded his degree in 1950 as a member of the then School of Design’s first graduating class in landscape architecture. In addition to having received many awards for his prolific built works including the design and construction of the NC State University Brick Yard, Dick is recognized for his many service contributions to the profession and the community. Among his achievements and contributions to the health, safety and welfare of the public are his efforts that lead to the licensure and registration of landscape architects in North Carolina.
