Sara Cohen

Sara Cohen grew up on the South Side of Chicago, and this urban upbringing led her to focus on how landscape architecture can integrate marginalized zones into the larger web of green space. She believes that the processes that act upon a site, from historical to natural to social, can generate the most technologically innovative and appropriate design. With Hargreaves, she has managed and participated in a range of projects from master plan through to final completion. With ASK, she helps out with residential design work.
