Gita Khandagle


Gita Khandagle is an artist, designer, and educator interested in the creation of experiential frameworks for activity, ecology, and memory. Born in Los Angeles and situated for the past decade in Oakland, California’s distinctive communities and terrain have served as the launching point of her explorations. Her recent art practice has consisted of participatory installations & experimental assemblages of still and moving images, prints, recordings and objects.

Following her studies of architecture and sustainable design at UC Berkeley, she has spent the past decade practicing landscape architecture & fabrication. Informed by her design background, her approach centers around materiality, collaboration and placemaking. She currently practices landscape design as a partner at Space Open Studio and is a lecturer in the College of Environmental Design at UC Berkeley & the Department of Human Ecology at UC Davis.
