Gresham, Smith and Partners announces that Patrick Henry, PLA, ASLA, has joined the firm as a landscape architect. Henry brings 10 years of experience in landscape architecture and design, with a focus on community-centered parks and green spaces. He will strengthen the landscape architecture services offered and provide leadership on notable projects including Town Branch Greenway, a 3.2-mile urban multi-modal greenway that will transform downtown Lexington, Ky., and close the gap between the city’s two trail systems.

“Patrick is known for his ability to get the job done, even with the most complex projects,” commented Mickey Sullivan, P.E., executive vice president at Gresham, Smith and Partners. “He also possesses a truly inspired design perspective. That uncommon combination of exceptional creativity and effective project delivery is one of the many reasons we’re pleased to welcome Patrick to our team. He operated his own landscape architecture design company for eight years, and he’s created award-winning landscapes across the country. We know he’ll do tremendous work for our clients and bring valuable experience to our Louisville office.”

“Landscape design is about choreographing an experience, so it’s essential to understand the ethos of each project,” said Henry. “As landscape architects, we should intentionally express the value of design in creating spaces, while also striving for sustainability. Good design brings together aesthetics, comfort, community and environmental responsibility. I’ve seen GS&P’s impact across Kentucky and I look forward to this new opportunity to work on some of the important projects that are shaping the future of our cities.”

Henry owned and operated Patrick Henry Landscape Architects (formerly Patrick Henry Design Associates) for eight years prior to joining GS&P. During this time, he earned Honor Awards from the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) Kentucky Chapter for his work on Produce Park and ReSurfaced: A Pop-up Plaza on Main Street, both located in Louisville. Other significant projects include the 14-acre Woodland Garden Project within The Parklands of Floyds Fork in Louisville, and a six-acre private residence in Glenview, Ky. Henry was also a landscape designer for two years at Cummin Associates, working from the firm’s Louisville and Stonington, Conn., offices. He is active in the Louisville community, serving as a board member for City Collaborative and providing pro bono design services for many organizations including Louisville Ballet Studios, YouthBuild – Louisville, the Kentucky Shakespeare Festival and Actors Theatre Louisville. Henry graduated from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, with a Bachelor of Science degree in Landscape Architecture.
