Sam Williamson, ASLA, CLARB


Sam grew up in Portland, Oregon and earned his landscape architecture degree from Harvard's Graduate School of Design.

After graduating, Sam worked for two of the country's most prominent contemporary landscape architects as well as with a more traditional landscape architect. These professional poles formed a range from which Sam draws his own design vision, stating that he hopes his most traditional designs have the freshness of the new within them and that his most contemporary designs express a knowledge of history and garden tradition.

Sam opened his own firm in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 1991 and while we still maintain a presence there, SHWA's main office has been in Portland, Oregon since 1997.
