Senior Associate | Landscape Designer
Role at GreenWorks:
Robin is a project manager and landscape designer with fifteen years of experience in institutional, civic, and residential design. Her varied experience in the civic and the academic arenas allow her to facilitate communication between designers, planners, and specialists on projects that explore the edge between preservation and development. She has expertise in the development of projects from conceptual design, construction documentation, construction administration and installation through her experience of maintaining her own private practice. She is inspired by the interface between the civic and the ecologic realm which provides an opportunity to create spaces that entertain, enlighten, and educate.
Why I work here:
After two years of academia and nine years of private practice, I knew that I wanted to be in a strong, creative collective of people who thought bioswales and porous paving were the coolest thing since sliced Ken’s bread. After attending the firm’s staff retreat in the Opal Creek Ancient Forest Preserve, I realized I was in the company of 15 people who were bigger plant geeks than myself. I felt right at home. Greenworks has exceeded all my expectations in what a firm of conscientious colloborateurs can accomplish and achieve.
