Czerniak is a registered landscape architect and founder and principal, with Mark Linder, of CLEAR. At SU, she teaches architectural studios as well as seminars on landscape theory and criticism. Educated as an architect (Princeton University, M.Arch. 1992) and landscape architect (Pennsylvania State University, B.A. 1984), her research and practice focus on the intersection of these disciplines.
Czerniak, in collaboration with Field Operations, is part of the winning design team for the Syracuse Connective Corridor competition; with Marpillero Pollak Architects, she won the artNET Public Art Landscape Design Competition in Toledo, Ohio, in 2006, and was a winner of the 2001 Young Architects Forum competition sponsored by The Architectural League of New York.
Czerniak is editor of two books — “Large Parks” (Princeton Architectural Press, 2007) and “Case: Downsview Park Toronto” (Prestel and Harvard Design School, 2001) — that focus on contemporary design approaches to public parks. Her essays include “Fertilizer: Eisenman Olin” (Institute for Contemporary Art, 2006); “Landscape Urbanism,” Charles Waldheim, ed. (Princeton Architectural Press, 2006); “Assemblage 34” (MIT Press, 1998); and “Harvard Design Review.”
Czerniak has exhibited at the Architectural League, the Storefront for Art and Architecture, the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies, the Van Alen Institute, Castle Gallery, Galleria Frau and Gallery Joe. She lectures widely.
