Joe Werner is a Senior Landscape Architect at DHDA. A graduate of the University of Georgia’s College of Environment & Design, Joe worked for years with the Office of University Architects in Athens, Georgia, contributing to a number of educational and public designs. From community gardens to coastal research facilities, Joe earned a Georgia ASLA Merit Award for his body of undergraduate work.
Having relocated to the West Coast after graduating from UGA, Joe has extensive experience in residential design and project management throughout Southern California. The time Joe spent living and working in Los Angeles early in his career expanded his knowledge and love of plant material. The arid environments of the southern and western United States have fostered in him a particular interest in the responsible use and conservation of natural resources, along with a rooted sense of pragmatism in landscape design and site planning. A registered Landscape Architect in the state of Connecticut, Joe has shared his design sensibility and efficient project management with DHDA since May 2014.
