Brittany Duguay

Project lead

Brittany Duguay is a project lead with expertise in campus landscapes and heritage sites and excels in shifting between scales, from masterplan to intervention. She leads cultural masterplans across the US, bringing a sensibility and appreciation for park design, urban landscapes, and gardens that facilitate community inclusiveness, cultural awareness, environmental activism, and nature-based practices. While based in the North American office, Brittany practices internationally, collaborating closely with founding partner Adriaan Geuze and the Netherlands Team.

Brittany’s experience includes all phases of project implementation. In the recently-executed 132 acre Houston Botanic Garden, she played a critical role in both design and construction. As the on-site construction administrator, Brittany oversaw day-to-day activities for 9 months of the project’s execution. In addition to her technical sensibilities, she led the design team in the conceptualization of the Garden, in particular the Waterwalls area. Through inspirational design, the project was executed due to successful fundraising and community outreach efforts, allowing Brittany to understand the intricacies of non-profits and the processes of capital campaigning. Through endowed fellowships, Brittany has conducted research on many international urban river systems at the University of Virginia’s School of Architecture, where she graduated summa cum laude and received the prestigious Edgar F. Shannon Award.
