Kevin Benham holds the Jon Emerson/Wayne Womack Design Professorship at the Robert Reich School of Landscape Architecture at Louisiana State University.  He received his MLA from the Graduate School of Design at Harvard University and his MArch at the Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning, The University of Michigan.

He has taught interdisciplinary studios at several academic institutions, including the University of Michigan, Louisiana State University, Wentworth Institute of Technology and the Boston Architectural College. His research and work focuses on landscape phenomena and the temporal qualities inherent in the discipline. To that end, he produces temporal and ephemeral installations that elucidate phenomena requiring careful observation through space and time.

He has exhibited his conceptual work throughout the world, including exhibits at the Royal Institute of British Architects, London, England; CUBE Gallery, Manchester England; Zurich, Switzerland; New Orleans, Louisiana; and Scottsdale, Arizona. He is the recent recipient of a Windgate Foundation Fellowship at Haystack on Deer Isle Maine and an Edward Albee Foundation Fellowship in Montauk, New York.
