Profile: Gustafson Guthrie Nichol

Named the 2011 Cooper-Hewitt’s National Design Awardee in Landscape Architecture, Gustafson Guthrie Nichol (GGN) is an international landscape architecture practice based in Seattle, Washington founded by Kathryn Gustafson, Jennifer Guthrie, and Shannon Nichol.

They have experience in designing landscapes that are widely varied in size, type and scale. The carefully crafted spaces are typically born of its context and express the sculptural qualities of the landscape whilst that offer moments of contemplation in intimate and tranquil settings. These spaces often reflect the professional backgrounds of the designers many trained in landscape, architecture, engineering, graphics, ecology, and other sciences.

Recent project include the Lurie Garden of Millennium Park in Chicago, the Robert and Arlene Kogod Courtyard at the Smithsonian American Art Museum and National Portrait Gallery in Washington, DC, and the new Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation Campus in Seattle.
