Our friend Gere Kavanaugh is profiled in the July/August issue of Metropolis Magazine. It’s an entertaining and in-depth interview that explores her history and her multi-faceted, continually evolving career in design. 


Lisa Gimmy Landscape Architecture is a professional consulting firm offering master planning, site planning, and landscape design. Since its founding in 1992, LGLA has designed landscapes for schools, campuses, boutique hotels, buildings, public parks, estates, and private residences. At LGLA each project is viewed as an opportunity to explore a series of relationships: between the site and the region, architecture and landscape, and most importantly, between the landscape and the people who will use and enjoy it.
