Yaki Miodovnik, PLA, ASLA,CSLA
Yaki leaves a lasting legacy of practicing an ecological design approach on a global scale. He believed that Andropogon’s approach to site design was needed in all parts of the world, particularly in rapidly developing areas. His work ranged from islands in the Caribbean, Africa, and the Middle East, across Southeast Asia, to Japan, Korea, and, most recently, China.
Yaki brought an infectious enthusiasm to exploring and learning about the unique ecology of a place, its geology, soils, hydrology, and plant communities, whether traveling a few hours from home or half-way across the earth. He loved learning new things from our environment, bringing us all in to wonder and marvel at its beautiful complexities.
