For the landscape architects at The Office of James Burnett (OJB), each project is about creating spaces that are individually suited to their unique environments and end users, which is a creative philosophy that 18-year OJB veteran Ronald “Chip” Trageser, ASLA, knows inside and out. In his 25 years of experience in the landscape architecture profession, Trageser has refined a design technique that combines this placemaking approach with an environmental consciousness.

Finding room for open, natural spaces in over-developed major cities isn’t always easy. However, The Office of James Burnett (OJB) recently stepped up to the challenge, and we’re happy to announce that their design for Dallas’ Klyde Warren Park, a pedestrian-friendly, urban park built over an existing freeway, earned the 2014 Urban Land Institute (ULI) Urban Open Space Award. The annual competition recognizes public spaces that socially and economically enrich and revitalize communities.
