Congratulations to Local Fellowship Winner
From The Cultural Landscape Foundation
2016 will also mark the first TCLF-Sasaki Fellowship, whose inaugural fellow will be Tom Klein. Working at Sasaki’s headquarters in Watertown, Massachusetts, Klein will contribute to the What’s Out There Cultural Landscapes Guide to Boston, an interactive online guide being developed by TCLF and the National Park Service (NPS) in celebration of the 100th anniversary of the NPS’s founding. Klein is a passionate urbanist currently pursuing an M.L.A. at the Boston Architectural College. His main areas of focus include designing urban landscapes and finding opportunities to create vibrant community nodes and linear corridors. Born in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Klein attended Edgewood College in Madison, Wisconsin, where he earned a B.S. in marketing and communication and a certificate in sustainability leadership. He spent several years as an entrepreneur with a cultural focus in Madison, championing a variety of initiatives in multiple roles. He was the sustainability director for a farm-to-table café and was the Dane County director for the Wisconsin Bike Fed, a state-wide bicycle advocacy nonprofit. After graduation, he hopes to work on large-scale urban design projects that focus on urban mobility, sustainability, and ecology.
