Amy Bell, PLA, ASLA

Principal Landscape Architect

As founding principal of Groundwork Studio, Amy provides over twelve years’ experience in site and landscape design for educational landscapes, public space design, and play environments in the arid Southwest. With a background in environmental education and as a lecturer at the School of Architecture and Planning at UNM, her design approach prioritizes shared discovery to inspire design team and project site alike. Amy’s volunteer work with school gardens in California and New Mexico, development of elementary curriculum for NM school garden and green infrastructure design, and recent work on “pop up” play events gives her valuable understanding of collaborative strategies for community building through open space design.
