ABOUT GUSTAFSON GUTHRIE NICHOL (GGN)
Gustafson Guthrie Nichol (GGN) is a landscape architecture practice based in Seattle,
Washington. Founded by partners Kathryn Gustafson, Jennifer Guthrie, and Shannon Nichol,
GGN works throughout the Americas and Asia. Its projects are developed by designers with
professional backgrounds in landscape, architecture, engineering, graphics, ecology, and
other sciences, express the sculptural qualities of contextual landscape.
GGN offers special experience in designing high-use landscapes in complex, urban contexts.
GGN’s landscapes are widely varied in type and scale, but they share qualities as healthy
settings for diverse and ever-changing activities. The landform of each space is carefully
shaped to feel serenely grounded in its context and comfortable at all times -- whether
bustling with crowds, offering moments of contemplation, or doing both at once.
GGN's recent project awards include the prestigious Cooper Hewitt 2011 National Design
Award for Landscape Architecture, multiple ASLA National Design Excellence Awards, Tucker
Architectural Awards, and AIA/ASLA Honor and Merit awards for Design. GGN’s prominent
projects include the Lurie Garden of Millennium Park in Chicago, the Robert and Arlene
Kogod Courtyard at the Smithsonian American Art Museum and National Portrait Gallery in
Washington, DC, and the new Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation Campus in Seattle.
