Taylor is a Principal based out of Seattle who has practiced Landscape Architecture and Urban Design in Washington and Texas since 2013. Taylor’s work focuses on projects with integral low-impact development features and increasing biodiversity within cultural + social contexts. He is an advocate for science-based sustainability in design, which is advanced through a focus on low carbon materiality, natural process adaptation, soil microbiology, designer/novel ecosystems, and organic landscaping practices. Taylor advances landscape architecture as an evolving and dynamic role within the community, layering in concepts from nature therapy, environmental ethics, critical regionalism, tactical urbanism, and permaculture into the design process. He believes thoughtful site analysis, observation, active listening, and organization are integral to successful and impactful project work. He views design aesthetics as the outcome to a pointed application of culture, utility, and natural processes.
Living in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Seattle, Taylor spends lots of time outside. Walking, riding his bicycle, and hanging with friends at the park provide opportunities to observe how people, plants, and trees interact in the built environment. He also likes to go backpacking, design and sew backpacking gear, draw, paint, read, and study maps.
