Buddy Hall is a principal and landscape architect with Hanbury focusing on residence housing studies and campus master planning. He is a proponent of a design approach that combines the latest software platforms with quick trace-and-marker sketches, and he also appreciates the value of one-on-one conversations with end-users, especially students. He is a frequent speaker at conferences, a regular contributor to the firm's blog, and is the recipient of the American Society of Landscape Architecture Honor Award for research. His two books, Community by Design and A Concise Guide to Community Planning, are used as textbooks in many collegiate urban planning programs.
"Long gone are the days when our profession was solely about design. To be relevant in today's marketplace we also have to be social scientists, researchers, market specialists, and experts in business and finance. I love to help clients envision what's possible."
