Elissa Rosenberg has been teaching a wide range of courses at the University of Virginia since she began teaching in 1989, spanning technical courses (grading and landform), design studios and theory seminars. Prior to teaching she practiced in Toronto and New York. In 1993 she received The Council of Educators in Landscape Architecture Award of Distinction for her teaching accomplishments. She has lectured and published on a variety of urban issues such as urban space and gender in the work of Jane Jacobs, urban "infrastructure" landscapes, and the relationship of landscape architecture and engineering in the city. Her current research concerns the role of grading in the expression of larger conceptual themes in contemporary American and European works of landscape architecture. Her book Landform and Design: The Topographic Imagination was supported by a grant from the Graham Foundation, and will be published by the Center for American Places with Johns Hopkins Press. During 1996-1998 she was a visiting professor at the Faculty of Architecture and Town Planning at the Technion Institute, Haifa, Israel.
