Kathryn Gustafson brings more than thirty years of distinguished practice to her partnerships in two offices: GGN in Seattle and Gustafson Porter in London. She is known for her diverse range of works—ground-breaking, contemporary designs that incorporate the sculptural, sensual qualities that are fundamental to the human experience of landscape. Examples include the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, D.C.; Westergasfabriek Culture Park in Amsterdam; and the Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fountain in London. Gustafson is an honorary fellow of the Royal Institute of British Architects, London; an honorary member of the Royal Designers for Industry, London; a medalist of the Académie Royale d’Architecture, Paris; and a Fellow of the American Society of Landscape Architects. She is the recipient of the Arnold W. Brunner Memorial Prize in Architecture, the Obayashi Prize, the ASLA Design Medal, the Chrysler Design Award, and London’s Jane Drew Prize. In 2011, GGN received the Smithsonian’s Cooper-Hewitt National Design Award for Landscape Architecture.
