Role at GreenWorks:
Gini Piercy is a Landscape Designer at GreenWorks. Gini has a Masters of Landscape Architecture degree from the University of Oregon and a Bachelor of Arts in Interdisciplinary Visual Arts from the University of Washington. After receiving her masters, Gini taught several courses at the University Of Oregon Department Of Landscape Architecture, including a course based on her Masters Project, applying contemporary drawing concepts and teaching methods to a landscape architecture curriculum in order to develop a comfort and confidence with the act of drawing in the design process. Gini’s appreciation of sensitive design and place identity stems from growing up on Ebey’s Landing National Historic Reserve, Whidbey Island. She credits this for leading her to work with cultural landscapes at the National Park Service and drawing her to GreenWorks. In her spare time Gini enjoys drawing, gardening, and exploring public lands with her boyfriend and their dog, Trooper.
Why I Work Here:
GreenWorks has a strong design ethos, integrating human and non-human community interests into designed environments, from playscapes to wetlands, management guides to master plans. I’m pleased to work somewhere that has a positive impact both on the health of the environment as the betterment of people’s everyday life.
