Ben Turpin

Designer | Landscape Architecture

“Great design improves our daily lives; at its best, it can inspire and connect, leaving a compelling built legacy for future generations to occupy and enjoy. Great design creates vibrant and dynamic places, communities, and cities that people return to again and again.”

A collaborative, interdisciplinary environment where designers have the opportunity to work on projects of varying scales and typologies is what attracted Ben to 3north. He views landscape architecture as the perfect blend of architecture and design, ecological and natural systems, and placemaking. His quiet and calm demeanor is often taken for shyness, though underneath this exterior is a designer who aspires to foster and build community by creating beautiful, sustainable and contextual places that connect people to one another and to the natural and built environments.

Ben received his Bachelor of Landscape Architecture from Virginia Tech.
