Abby rejoined dwg. as a full-time landscape designer after graduating with her Masters of Landscape Architecture from the University of Texas at Austin. Before completing her degree, Abby served as a summer intern for dwg. She grew up in the Adirondacks Mountains, and spent her childhood exploring the woods, climbing the High Peaks, and swimming in Lake Champlain. These experiences instilled in her a love for exploration and discovery, which she applies to her design process.
Abby’s work seeks to foster physical and emotional connections to our environments and bring a sense of exploration to our urban spaces. Abby’s design process prioritizes iteration and cross-disciplinary collaboration to solve problems. She believes that it is essential to activate a range of scales in each project to create a space that engages the community and creates place.
When she’s not place-making in the studio, you can find Abby hiking in our state parks and exploring swimming holes with her husband, daughter and dog, Lulu. You might also find Abby at her sewing machine late at night, trying to finish up her latest garment.
