Bruce Arnold is a registered Architect with a diverse professional background as designer, project manager, and project architect on several large, multi-disciplinary projects. Since joining the Jones & Jones in 2000, he has led teams for major museum and cultural center projects including Agua Caliente Cultural Museum in Palm Springs, California, the Southern Ute Museum and Cultural Center in Southwestern Colorado, the Hanford Reach National Monument Heritage and Visitor Center, Richland, Washington and the New Wanapum Heritage Center, Desert Aire, Washington.
Bruce approaches projects like spirited conversations amongst friends, each sharing their expertise with the common goal of informing and inspiring the public. Whether museums, libraries, landscapes, classrooms, collections, galleries, or archives, his work provides a forum for discourse among the constituent elements of community: individuals, culture and our shared environment.
Bruce believes that by engaging people in experiential, place-based design, new ways of thinking about the world around us can emerge, promoting greater awareness of how our actions affect the environment and how the environment affects us. These interactions between a people and their place form the bedrock of culture and make beautiful, meaningful places possible.
Duane Dietz is a licensed landscape architect with more than 20 years of experience, including ten years at Jones & Jones. His work includes the planning and design of regional parks, educational and play spaces, zoos, botanical gardens, cultural facilities and historic preservation; and the creation of low impact development standards.
Key to Duane’s work is the use of native plants. His philosophy is founded upon the idea that a region’s native plants are best suited to grow in the environment within which they have evolved. His wetland reconstruction and restoration work is based on exclusive use of native plants and creating the substrate in which they will succeed.
Duane is a long-time member of the Society of Ecological Restoration and the Society of Ethnobiology. His participation in both groups allows him to develop plant lists and planting plans for landscape projects that are best adapted to each particular environment.
Cory Parker’s expertise is in transforming landscapes through ecological and cultural restoration. He has 14 years of experience as a landscape architect, managing environmental planning, parks and open space, as well as stream and river restoration projects.
Since joining Jones & Jones in 2001, he has managed many projects, including landscape and stream restorations associated with the reconstruction of Montana’s US Highway 93; interpretive plans for two farms in the Puget Sound basin with certified “salmon safe” streams; and the master plan for Ravensdale Park in King County, Washington
Before Jones & Jones, he worked with L.C. Lee & Associates, collaborating with wetland ecologists, botanists, and soil scientists to re-create complex, riparian ecosystems. He has also worked for the Natural Resources Conservation Service, designing master plans of parks, urban stream corridors and streets for local governments and tribes.
Cory received his Master of Landscape Architecture degree from the University of Washington (with a thesis on people’s perception of urban riparian landscapes) and his Bachelor’s degree in landscape architecture from the University of California at Davis.
Charlie Scott is a registered landscape architect with more than 25 years of experience in complex planning and design projects, including parks and recreational facilities, botanical gardens, zoo exhibits, transportation facilities, corporate and university campuses, and learning centers and museums. He has held project management and landscape architect positions from master planning through construction administration phases of projects. He has managed a wide array of multi-faceted projects requiring the involvement of various public agencies and community-based organizations and the coordination of diversified teams of consultants and environmental specialists.
Charlie specializes in the planning and design of highways that require the careful integration of the road into sensitive landscapes and community settings. He has developed visual quality assessments and aesthetic design guidelines for several highways, and has reconciled community concerns and objections to several controversial highway projects. His work on the Paris-Lexington Road in Kentucky has been nationally recognized as the benchmark for context-sensitive highway design—now known as “context-sensitive solutions” by state and federal highway departments throughout the U.S.—and a superlative example of effective public involvement.
David Sorey is a landscape architect with more than 15 years of experience on a wide variety of planning and design projects, including parks and recreational facilities, interpretive centers, urban sports stadiums, zoo master plans and exhibits, museums and cultural centers and transportation facilities. He has extensive experience in site analysis and site design at a broad range of scales, and is also skilled in visual resource assessment, transportation corridor analysis, GIS mapping, development of visual guidelines, roadway design, wildlife crossing design, and the creation of simulations. David has developed expertise in the design of roadways in environments where visually and culturally sensitive issues require careful integration and optimal fit with the land. He is experienced with AutoCAD, Microstation, Roadworks (a roadway design and simulation program), ArcGIS, Rhino, SketchUp and Photoshop.
