Dan Shaw’s goal as a designer is to make our intrinsic connection with ecological systems visible, productive, and inspiring, through the design of the landscapes we inhabit. Dan received a Master’s degree in Landscape Architecture from the University of Washington in 2012 and a Bachelor’s in Landscape Architecture from the University of Massachusetts in 2009. Dan brings to Dodson & Flinker skills in collaborative design, graphic production, construction documentation, and interdisciplinary coordination on complex projects.
Prior to joining Dodson & Flinker, Dan spent several years as a landscape designer in the Pacific Northwest, where his work on urban waterfronts combined the design of public space and ecological restoration. Dan’s academic work focused on landscape as ecological infrastructure, to address challenges of climate change and urbanization in the next century. His studio work occurred in New England, Seattle, Peru, Italy, Scandinavia, Japan, Central America, and earned two Honor Awards from the American Society of Landscape Architects.
