Sara Cohen is a founding principal and registered landscape architect at ASK Design/Build, Inc. located in Cambridge and Arlington, MA. She has a particular interest in the design and construction of urban public spaces. She believes that through engaging the processes that act upon a site, from historical to natural to social, designers can generate technologically innovative, long-lasting and appropriate designs.
Prior to ASK, Cohen worked at Hargreaves Associates and Sasaki Associates, where she contributed to a range of projects from master plan through final completion. These projects included Blaxland Riverside Park in Sydney, Australia, the Chicago Riverwalk, the Lawn on D in Boston and the Wilmington Waterfront Promenade at the Port of Los Angeles. The Lawn on D won the AIA National Small Project Award and an Honor Award for General Design from the American Society of Landscape Architects. The Chicago Riverwalk was recently awarded a Rudy Bruner Award for Urban Excellence silver medal. Recent projects with ASK include Broadsheet Coffee Roasters and Lamplighter Brewery Co. in Cambridge, MA.
