Adam E. Anderson

Director at Design Under Sky


Adam E. Anderson is a registered landscape architect and Founder/Director of Design Under Sky. Projects vary in a range of scales that include but are not excluded to a hospital healing gardens, residential gardens, masterplanning, campus plazas, rooftop gardens, and urban parks, as well as commissioned public art works.

His work negotiates with the ever changing landscape by understanding the unique phenomenological qualities and cultural influences inherent in a site, and then deploying interventions to embrace, reveal, and often embellish these qualities. "Nature" is abstracted in our projects, culminating in a celebration of wonder found in both the technological and ecological.

He has taught at RISD since 2014 and has been a visiting critic at Harvard Graduate School of Design, The Ohio State University, Northeastern University, and the Boston Architectural College.

Prior to forming the D.U.S. Adam worked for the award winning offices of Landworks Studio and Ground, Inc. in Boston working on several international and regional projects.
