Emily Bauer

Emily Bauer leads Bau Land and Jungle NYC. Her work touches on landscape architecture, architecture, urban design, resilience planning, and product. She grew up on a farm and now connects people with nature through the built environment and business.

Since 2010, Bauer has worked with a range of clients, from Fortune 500 companies to non-profits, to realize design projects linked to big ideas. Bau Land is a landscape architecture studio founded in 2019. Bau Land’s work includes a regenerative center in Lebanon and a community-led vision for Bushwick Inlet Park. Jungle NYC is an indoor plant company launched in 2020. Jungle NYC has created plant designs and content with brands like Google, Arc’teryx, Adidas, and Vogue. Before starting her own companies, Bauer was a designer at Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) where she led prominent projects like the Lower Manhattan Climate Adaptation Plan and a Google master plan. While an Associate at !melk Landscape Architecture, she helped realize the first park on Las Vegas Blvd.

Bauer has taught at Columbia University and Cornell University on architecture, landscape architecture, and biology. She regularly lectures on her research and projects. She was a Juror for the AN Best of Design Awards, and her work has been featured in exhibitions, including ‘Humanhattan 2050’ at the 2018 Venice Biennale, ‘Unzipped Toronto,’ and ‘The Street’ exhibition at the Van Abbe Museum.

Emily Bauer’s approach to design comes through a background in the sciences. She received her Master’s of Landscape Architecture from Cornell University and her Bachelors of Science in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology.
