Nathanael Gray
Landscape Architect

Nathanael believes that each project he designs adds another layer to an already transpiring story. The landscape is complex and nuanced; each place has a unique social and environmental history. To understand this story Nathanael finds inspiration by spending time on the site, in depth site analysis, and dialogue with the community.

Projects he has worked on include public parks, community master plans, school grounds, and urban plazas. In his spare time Nathanael continues to explore the landscape where he lives by hiking, plein air painting, and taking long walks until he is lost, then finding his way back.
