Posted: May 12, 2021

Margaret Plumb is a registered Landscape Architect and an Associate in Design Workshop’s Aspen studio. Margaret enjoys working collaboratively and thinking creatively on a broad range of scales and geographies. She is passionate about projects that shape clients’ and communities’ everyday experience of the built environment. Her background in urban and environmental sociology combined with her professional experience has led to a socio-ecological focus in her design sensibilities, combining environmental priorities and empathy for the users of a site to create meaningful places.

Her project work includes Story Mill Community Park in Bozeman, MT; Aspen Police Station; large scale residential properties in Aspen, CO and Jackson, WY; the restoration of Aspen Institute’s Marble Garden sculpture; and an infrastructure and urban design update of Aspen’s historic Pedestrian Mall. Margaret sits on the Bike, Pedestrian, and Trails Commission in her community of Carbondale, CO. She has spoken at the National ASLA conference in 2016 about women in Landscape Architecture and in 2019 about integrating security in site design. Margaret is a graduate of the Roaring Fork Leadership Academy and received her Master of Landscape Architecture degree from the University of Virginia.
