About Show more

Educated in the fine arts as a painter, Kim studied landscape architecture and ecological planning at the University of Pennsylvania. "Here I learned that it was possible to 'read' the landscape," she says, "and that design was not only about creating beauty but revealing meaning." This commitment to beauty and meaningfulness has informed all of her award-winning projects. Kim is the recipient of more than a dozen design awards, is past-President of the New York State Council of Landscape Architects, and lectures frequently across the country on environmental design. She is an active member of the American Society of Landscape Architects and the American Planning Association. Landscape architecture is a profoundly positive and collaborative profession," she adds. "It is a discipline that embodies hope and requires a longer, larger vision."
