Fluxscape is led by Principal & Creative Director Andrea Hansen, an optimistic urbanist and data-visualization devotee whose passion for cities began when she lived in Abu Dhabi as a child. In addition to running Fluxscape, Andrea teaches and lectures widely, most recently at the Harvard Graduate School of Design from 2010-2015 where she was a Lecturer in Landscape Architecture and the inaugural Daniel Urban Kiley Fellow. She has also taught at California College of the Arts, Northeastern University, and Louisiana State University, where she was the 2013-2014 Marie Bickham Visiting Chair in Landscape Architecture.
In 2014, Andrea was a Code for America Fellow, where she worked on innovative web-based mapping and infrastructure projects with the City of Atlanta. In 2012, Andrea was chosen as one of Next City’s Vanguard class, a “40 under 40” selection of young leaders working on urban issues. Andrea holds a Master of Landscape Architecture and a Master of Architecture from the University of Pennsylvania, where she was the recipient of several awards including the George Madden Boughton Prize, the Warren P. Laird Award, the William M. Mehlhorn Scholarship, and the Van Alen Traveling Fellowship. She also holds a Bachelor of Arts in Urban Studies and Civil Engineering from Stanford University.
