Jeff Cutler is the recipient of the first ever SALA Service Award for his ongoing contributions to the school. The founder and principal of space2place, Jeff supports the school by consistently participating as a guest lecturer and through studio reviews. With over 20 years of experience as a landscape architect, he’s in a great position to comment on the current state of landscape architecture.
Over the course of his career, Jeff has seen how the profession has changed in terms of the people it attracts and the solutions that it proposes: “It’s been interesting to track the evolution of the landscape architecture program over the last 15 years or so and I’m happy to see that there’s a constant trajectory towards one of the best programs in North America.”
During his involvement at SALA, Jeff has been impressed by how students address both the small details and larger issues that face landscape architects, like sustainability, social issues, and climate change. He sees this as being something that’s particularly important for young landscape architects to consider.
