With heavy hearts we share the news of the passing of ASLA-NCC member Robert Hewitt, FASLA. Robert was a Professor of Landscape Architecture at Clemson University, and a scholar of cross-cultural design. Hewitt studied German, Spanish and French as an undergraduate at the University of California, Davis, before attending law school at University of the Pacific in Sacramento, California. His father was an entomologist and also “an architect at heart,” providing Robert a childhood immersed in both the natural world and the built environment. “My fate was perhaps always to be a landscape architect,” he said. He went on to earn Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Landscape Architecture and a Master of City Planning degree at the University of California, Berkeley. Since then, Robert Hewitt distinguished himself in both academic and professional circles. He had published more than 30 articles, papers and book chapters about landscape architecture and how it intersects with diverse cultures, human health, plant health, higher education and technology. He will be greatly missed.
