Landscape Architect Intern - Community Development - (Summer 2024) 4 Months - ( 230004MJ )
Through analysis, planning, and design, we create inspired landscapes that reflect local contexts, user needs and act inclusively. Whether designing, reviewing, or overseeing the construction of an urban park, a restored wetland, a town center, an athletic complex, a waterfront destination, or transportation facility enhancement, we make valuable contributions to the quality of life in our communities and the overall profession of Landscape Architecture. Collaboratively, we create opportunities from constraints, helping our clients achieve unique project outcomes through the development of creative goals which form the design, create systems for the organization of complex technical information, and illustrate opportunities for the use of space. From concept development through construction drawings and the implementation of creative solutions, we're the source and facilitator of creative ideas which achieve project goals while being economically viable and environmentally responsible. Join us for the summer!
