Jared Edgar McKnight
Captivated by landscape’s potential as a system to support environmental and social resilience, Jared seeks to advance the practice as an impeccable designer and a dedicated leader. His passion for designs that challenge the structures that isolate and exclude communities and ecosystems invites us to see the landscapes around us anew, with an empathic lens that considers those least represented through active engagement with communities and stakeholders. His multidisciplinary background in landscape architecture, architecture and urban design focuses his work at the intersect of all disciplines within WRT. Jared constantly extends himself to give back to his local, professional and academic communities through his design work, research, advocacy and community service, and his keen eye for design, coupled with his unparalleled commitment to volunteering and community service, have garnered local, national, and international recognitions.
