Ben Feldmann is a landscape architect and urban designer with over twenty years experience who integrates ecologically sound, system-based thinking into his work. As a Principal at Studio-MLA, he spearheads many of the firm’s public-realm oriented projects and provides oversight and leadership on design and planning in the studio. Striving for resilient communities and urban regeneration, he seeks solutions with environmental synergies between built, social and natural spheres. Ben has both collaborated with multi-disciplinary teams for urban development and led the conceptual design for open space, streetscapes, and urban regeneration projects. More recently, in conjunction with SOM, a proposed new community for South LA would transform a former industrial site into a vibrant mixed-use development with over two acres of public open space. Ben received his Master of Urban Design (MUD) from University of California, Berkeley and Bachelor of Landscape Architecture (BLA) from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo. Ben is based in our Los Angeles studio.
