Dorothy Faris


Dorothy has worked on a variety of public and private projects across the Western United States. Her ability to think across scales—from master planning large sites to specifics of construction details—informs her project work. She values collaboration from the beginning of the project, working closely with the architecture and interiors team, consultants and stakeholders, to assure a seamless blending of site, structure and community.  Her collaborative and conceptual approach makes her a valuable member of our integrated team.

With a background in ceramics and art history, Dorothy was attracted to landscape architecture as an art form that enhances our built environments. Her concept driven approach aims to reveal stories of a place, celebrate ecological function and generate community life through the creation of great civic spaces.
