Christina Hoxie, AICP, Associate Principal, to direct BNIM’s nationally recognized planning studio
With a diverse background of academic and professional work in interiors, architecture, and planning, Christina looks for opportunities to develop richly interdisciplinary teams and collaborate with the people of each community to design places, strategize programs and create policies that will help to fulfill their shared vision.
Christina sees the practice of planning as a means to find solutions resulting in greater environmental justice, economic opportunity, and social equity founded in technical expertise and facilitation of an adaptive and community-centered process.
During her eight years at BNIM she has led projects of many scales and types including Green Infrastructure planning for the Greater Kansas City region; Strategic Planning for the Kansas City Native Plant Initiative; Master Planning for the Kansas City Art Institute; the Flint Hills Frontiers, an ecoregional plan for 19 counties in Kansas; and the Master Plan of the Thunder Valley Regenerative Community Development on Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. The Thunder Valley master plan was recently featured in the exhibit By the People: Designing a Better America Exhibition at Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum.
