With licensure and professional degrees in landscape architecture (from Harvard’s Graduate School of Design) and architecture (from the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor), Wendy has been practicing since 2003. She enjoys working closely with multidisciplinary teams of architects, engineers and artists to create site-specific, sustainable designs for a variety of project types and scales. These have ranged from a one-acre hillside residence to the project known as Rebuild Potrero, which encompasses 38 acres of streetscape, open space, and new apartments.
Wendy specializes in designing and managing large-scale planning projects with extensive outreach and entitlement processes; crucially, she is skilled in carrying these projects through detailing and construction. Since joining GLS, she has designed and managed public projects including the New Hospital at Stanford University (with Rafael Viñoly Architects), the Exploratorium in San Francisco, and renovations to the Haas School of Business at UC Berkeley. Her residential projects include the 44-story residential tower at Transbay Block 9 (with Skidmore, Owings & Merrill), a new 19-acre neighborhood at the former Schlage Lock Factory in San Francisco’s Visitacion Valley, and Station Park Green, a new 12-acre neighborhood in San Mateo. Her honors include the 2011 ASLA Professional Award (for the redevelopment of the Hunters View neighborhood), the 2011 ASLA-NCC Award of Excellence and the 2014 Urban Land Institute’s Global Award for Excellence (for the Exploratorium), and, for Station Park Green, the 2008 AIA Merit Award.
Prior joining GLS, Wendy worked for EDAW AECOM, where she worked on mixed-use/commercial developments and public space enhancement projects in Macau, Beijing, and Los Angeles.Back to Staff
