Ben Summay, Designer & Project Manager

Master of Landscape Architecture – University of Pennsylvania, 2018
Benjamin came to design from a background in international development spending his undergraduate degree focusing on economics, sustainable agriculture, and political science. After graduating he discovered landscape architecture and sought to bring his experiences into this new field of study to address multifaceted problems in our society and environment. His work in school comes from a unique interest in design digital media and the power data has on a large scale to transform the spaces in which we live. Additionally, he sees the complexities of a person’s relationship with nature and other people as the primary focus of landscape architecture.
As an emerging professional, Benjamin is learning how to combine large design ideas with the practical execution of those ideas across a variety of scales. Each space is connected to a larger system and understanding that system can inform how to create a world in which we live with nature. At ZDA he brings his expertise in digital media, mapping, and modeling software as a tool for the design of resilient spaces for the future of our society and environment.
