Karla Dakin specializes in artful, environmentally bold landscape architecture with an array of international projects. Shaped by a career in the national art world, her work continually references art. Plant-obsessed, Karla uses vegetation in forward-thinking ways, as exemplified by her roof garden for the Museum of Contemporary Art in Denver.
This passion for art and design leads to an intriguing twist in her collaborative designs. Her enthusiasm for green roofs led her to be a founding member of Growwest and an active member of Green Roofs for Healthy Cities.
