Ann Marie has over a decade of experience in urban landscape design and planning supported by a lifetime of artistic and professional practice. She has overseen all phases of project planning, design, development, and construction administration for a range of projects, including many of Seattle’s most historic and beloved spaces: the Pioneer Square Historic District plan, King Street Station Plaza, Fritz Hedges Waterway Park, Asian Art Museum campus, and Kubota Garden. Her curiosity about how we can better understand ourselves and our changing environment through transformative and durational landscape experiences drives her practice.

She joined the Weber Thompson Landscape Architecture studio in March 2022. Her current focus is on Modera Bridle Trails, a large multi-family housing project pursuing LEED Platinum, and Fujimatsu, a new signature development at the gateway to the International District. She’s excited about finding ways to raise the bar on regenerative and inclusive design and joining a team that prioritizes equity and sustainability.

Ann Marie is also a transdisciplinary artist, with a studio in the Good Arts Building in Pioneer Square. Her work includes site-specific installations, public arts consulting, published writing, and ongoing work in a variety of media. She is particularly inspired by geology and what it can teach us about transformation, non-human scale, and the growing disparity between human capitalist time and earth system time. She also loves to dig in her garden which she views as an urban ecology testing ground for both beauty and biodiversity.
