Elise Misao Hunchuck ( b. tkaronto/Toronto ) is a transdisciplinary researcher, editor, writer, and educator trained in landscape architecture, philosophy, and geography. Based in Berlin and Milan, her research practice—with sites in Canada, Japan, China, Europe, Russia and Ukraine—employs cartographic, photographic and text-based methods to document, explore, and archive co-constitutive relationships between materials, resources, infrastructures, natural processes, humans and more-than-humans.

Elise is a senior researcher and lecturer at The Bartlett School of Architecture in London, an editorial board member for the journal Scapegoat Journal: Architecture / Landscape / Political Economy and the editorial curator for transmediale, the festival for digital art and culture in Berlin. Elise also co-leads the architectural design studio ADS7 at the Royal College of Art in London, where alongside Marco Ferrari and Jingru Cyan Cheng, she has been conducting a multi-year research project investigating the politics of the atmosphere.

Her writing has been featured in The Funambulist, The Avery Review, and Flash Art. Her editorial work has been published with Sternberg Press, Archive Books, and Edinburgh University Press. Most recently, she co-edited Electric Brine (2021) alongside Jennifer Teets and Margarida Mendes.

Forthcoming titles include Jovis Verlag, Routledge, Duke University Press, The Architectural Review, Journal of Visual Art Practice, and the Minnesota University Press series Art after Nature.
