Elise Misao Hunchuck (b. Toronto) is a Berlin-based landscape researcher, editor, and educator trained in landscape architecture, philosophy, and geography (University of Toronto). Her transdisciplinary research practice — with sites in Canada, Japan, China, Europe and Ukraine — employs cartographic, photographic, and text-based methods to document, explore, and archive co-constitutive relationships between materials, resources, infrastructures, natural processes, humans, and more-than-humans. By considering landscapes political ecologies, her work develops co-constitutive understandings of landscapes and environmental design.

She is currently a visiting lecturer and studio tutor at the Royal College of Art School of Architecture (London), a senior researcher and reaching fellow in the Landscape Architecture programme at The Bartlett School of Architecture, London, and she has been, since 2017, a member of the editorial board of Scapegoat: Architecture/Landscape/Political Economy.
