Pamela Palmer is principal in charge of landscape architecture at Artecho in Venice, California. Holding a master’s degree in landscape architecture from the Harvard Graduate School of Design and a fine arts degree from UCLA, Pamela draws from her strong background in art and landscape architecture. Before joining Artecho, Pamela worked for eight years on projects in Japan and Europe, as well as across the US. Her long-standing conviction that an outdoor garden space can be sculpted in a way that it is artful and intriguing, while at the same time be practical and ecologically responsible, is evident in her work. Her experience includes projects ranging in size from residential and commercial to university and corporate campuses to city parks and urban design of new and existing town centres. Pamela’s current emphasis is on single and multi-family residential garden design projects ranging in scale from urban courtyards to rural estates as well as institutional and commercial works throughout California.
Pamela has been featured in countless magazine articles, was in the documentary ‘Women in the Dirt’ and several of her landscapes are showcased in a beautiful book by Charlotte M. Frieze, titled “Private Paradise: Contemporary American Gardens”.
We here at Ian Barker Gardens find Pamela’s garden designs inspirational and after viewing projects such as the ‘Horizon Garden’ below, we’re sure you’ll feel the same.
