Biography

Barty was born and raised in New York and received her Master of Landscape Architecture from Cornell University. After teaching at USU for two years, Barty moved to Hannover, Germany in 1983. Barty received her Ph.D. in landscape planning from Leibniz University in Hannover, where she taught and researched in the Department of Environmental Planning. She has also held a guest professor position in the Master of Landscape Architecture program at Anhalt University of Applied Sciences in Bernburg, Germany.

Teaching Interests

My teaching interests range from environmental planning and landscape analysis to sustainability and environmental ethics. The studio provides an ideal opportunity for students to learn the tools they need to function in professional life, but it also gives them enough freedom to build experience by independent problem solving.

Research Interests

An ongoing theme of my research is the use of computers and technology to support landscape planning. My research has focused on the role of computer visualization and internet to support citizen participation in the landscape planning process. Present research re-evaluates web-based landscape planning that was proposed in the R&D project “Interactive Landscape Plan of Königslutter, Germany”. Further research questions address how design approaches and methodologies can be used to improve the effectiveness of landscape planning and how Geo-design can support and coordinate the integration of planning and design. My research has also examined the visual impact of renewable energies on the landscape and the relationship of ecosystem services to landscape planning.
