Kim Douglas began teaching as an adjunct professor in 2006 in the Landscape Architecture program where she taught various design studio and landscape architecture graphics. Since becoming full time faculty in 2009, she has assisted in updating the curriculum, been involved in community outreach projects and of course teaching design studio!
Kim is also a licensed landscape architect and principle of private practice firm specializing in projects that combine her strong design aesthetic with the use of innovative sustainable solutions. It is her belief that each project must be considered for its natural systems as well as its social, historic and economic frameworks.
Prior to forming her own firm, she worked with the Olin Partnership in Philadelphia for 10 years where she was instrumental in all aspects of the design process on many large projects including the Comcast Tower in Philadelphia, Fountain Square in Cincinnati and Rincon Park in San Francisco.
Kim also volunteers with the Penn Design Alumni Board, Community Design Collaborative (an organization providing pro bono design services for non profit groups and volunteer organizations) and is an Associate with the Environmental Leadership Program that promotes and encourages new leaders in the environmental field.
