Gustafson Guthrie Nichol is a multidisciplinary practice specializing in high-use landscapes in complex urban contexts. Founded in Seattle, WA, by partners Kathryn Gustafson, Jennifer Guthrie, and Shannon Nichol, the firm distinguishes itself through its sensuous, sculptural environments it creates and its ability to apply a distinctive design vision to a wide range of sites. Gustafson Guthrie Nichol’s projects include the Arthur Ross Terrace at the American Museum of Natural History in New York; the Lurie Garden in Millennium Park in Chicago; North End Parks in Boston; and, most recently, the Smithsonian’s Kogod Courtyard at the Reynolds Center for American Art and Portraiture in Washington, D.C.
