Andrew Tillinghast

Landscape Ecologist & Designer

Restoring connections to natural ecosystems is Andrew’s professional and personal passion. From the heart of intractable problems, Andrew leverages counter-intuitive reconciliation ecologies into adaptive, workable solutions. He approaches landscape architecture as a discipline of unlimited possibility and embraces every project’s potential for surprise.  With a foundation of technical and scientific rigor, each design solution is an opportunity to create magic. His ecological literacy reflects an understanding of biodiversity as a continuum extending from wilderness to working landscapes to urban form and function. Andrew sees the big picture and is a consistently professional, relatable and reliable collaborator—an exuberant practitioner of Knot’s anti-disciplinary approach.
