• “A city green park will outlast any building, but it must be designed so that it can be built and maintained within a budget. And it must have the support of the community. Guided by these practical goals, our projects create places for people to interact with nature in ways that result in positive, memorable experiences.”

    With an impressive career spanning 40+ years, Vince crafts creative, buildable designs for a wide variety of project types.

  • “Land never depreciates. We work with the land to add value for people. What we do has a sense of wonder about it, because it comprises both art and science. It's an art because we’re concerned with beauty and experience; it's science because we have to do the math to make it work. And there’s a certain magic because we communicate our work on paper, but in the end, it’s all worked into the land.”

    In his 40+ years as a landscape architect, Bill has consistently focused on the careful balance between people and nature. With a deep respect for clients, communities and the environment, his work is both artful and innovative, his approach is both comprehensive and highly attentive to detail.
