Jason King, PLA, ASLA, LEED AP, SITES AP, CLARB
Landscape architect Jason King is driven to help clients explore the regenerative potential of urban sites and development projects. With a passion for evidence-based design that connects people with nature, Jason’s work is both vibrant and client-focused. Jason has over twenty years of experience in both public and private sectors, where he has collaborated with architects and engineers in mixed-use housing, commercial developments, healing environments, and schools.
As Board President for the Portland-based Green Roof Information Think-tank (GRiT), Jason is a committed advocate, writer, teacher, and speaker on nature-based thinking, regenerative design, historical ecology, and climate change. An award-winning expert in vegetated architecture, green infrastructure and stormwater facilities, Jason continually seeks opportunities to build on his decades-long experience as a LEED-Accredited Professional and, more recently, one of the first SITES-certified landscape architects and Salmon-Safe designers.
Jason loves working at GreenWorks because of our firm commitment to innovation and creativity, and the drive to continually challenge ourselves to tackle “wicked problems”, and ask, “What’s next?”
When Jason is not working out what’s next for green design, he is most likely found with his wife Beth and dog Franny exploring the dynamic food and wine scene of the Pacific Northwest.
