Partner, PLA, ASLA

Ben has been an integral member of Ground Studio since 2010 and has contributed to a wide range of award-winning projects as the Studio Director and one of the firm’s three partners. His passion for design has been shaped by his background in fine arts and sculpture, imbuing a deep value for the essential relationship of form to the experience of landscape. Ben’s work is marked by an integration of scale, influenced by a sensitivity to materiality and an instinct for broad contextual connections, bringing site and detail together as a whole. His response to diverse site conditions is informed by a poetic and restrained design ethos.

Ben is a licensed Landscape Architect and holds an MLA degree from Texas A&M University, as well as a BFA in Sculpture from the University of North Texas.
