Interest areas in research and practice:
Sustainable principals and concepts have always been a part of Judd’s practical experience and pedagogy. His research interests include measuring the overall success of a landscape project as it relates to use, materials, utility, and social, economic, and environmental systems. The mark of a successful landscape project is that it should be enduring, sustainable, and endearing to users of the space. Judd is interested in developing criteria to assess and display the success of a landscape and its overall design features. Additionally, Judd is interested in the history and identity of landscape architecture, specifically as it relates to campus design. This would include human settlement/development patterns and their influence on the landscape and natural processes. He investigates landscape history and theory and the importance of exploring geographical, cultural, and social landscape relationships.
