Studio Kongsgaard is a landscape architecture and urban design practice. The focus of our work is design for cultural and civic clients who value the public realm. We collaborate with land trusts, landscape conservancies, cities, and regional governance agencies. Increasingly, we focus on projects that mediate across scales from the bioregion to the site level. If you would like to work together, please get in touch.

A landscape and urban designer, in practice, Helen Kongsgaard's research situates design within the emergent field of climate adaptation and examines the concepts, methods, and practices at work as cities and regions adapt to climate change. In parallel to her practice, she also teaches design studios, research seminars, and methods courses as a visiting faculty member at various schools. She holds a Master of Landscape Architecture from Harvard University's Graduate School of Design, where her research was supported by the Center for Geographic Analysis, the David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies, and the Radcliffe Institute.
