Trained as an urban designer and landscape designer, Garlen has over 21 years of experience represented by large scale urban design and planning projects, as well as detailed site plans for a range of project types including urban neighborhoods, parks,
streetscapes, commercial corridors, and civic facilities. Her belief that successful projects use a multi-disciplinary approach that builds on the distinctive attributes of the natural and man-made setting leads her to designs that are community-driven and create an enduring sense of place. Her recent work at WRT has been in urban revitalization in Philadelphia and Camden, where she is engaged in the local communities to build capacity for improved housing, community health, and neighborhood resilience.
