Amy Mitchell (PLA, BFQP) is a highly experienced and versatile landscape architect and project director whose work can be found in a range of settings, in streets, schools, parks and specialized children’s environments around the country. Coming from arts education, Amy was drawn to landscape architecture as a means of manipulating texture, color, form and space. Rather than art on a wall or shelf, she creates entire environments that people interact with on a regular basis. In designing spaces, Amy strives to capture the spirit and the character of the communities that use them. She manages collaborative processes with extensive community outreach and needs assessments to uncover and reflect shared values. While detail-oriented and organized, Amy allows for a little controlled chaos because creativity needs space to emerge and unfold. A focused and persistent problem-solver, she is adept at utilizing new technology and exploring different perspectives to achieve desired project goals.
