In the News: Don Biddle Community Park & Fallon Sports Park / Landscape Architecture Magazine's April 2019 Issue

We’re delighted to have our work on the aesthetics and function of sports parks featured in the April issue of Landscape Architecture Magazine.

“Clash of the Terrains,” written by contributing editor Timothy Schuler, details an ongoing project of Carducci Associates’ to balance the performative and technical standards of athletic fields with ecologically sensitive and place-making planting design. The high contrast between a sense of order and a sense of wildness has been a common thread in our park projects in Dublin, California—notably Fallon Sports Park and the forthcoming Don Biddle Park.

In celebration of World Landscape Architecture month, the April issue of LAM is free in digital format to all. The issue is available here; or click here to jump straight to the article.

Celebrating Leadership At Carducci Associates / Monty Hill Promoted to Senior Associate!

Carducci Associates is excited to announce our growth in leadership with the promotion of landscape architect Monty Hill, LEED AP, CID, to Senior Associate! For five years, Monty has brought his sense of beauty and technical expertise to many teams and projects, always with singular calm, respect, and thoughtfulness. With this promotion, we celebrate Monty’s achievements in the firm.

Monty began his career as a civil engineer focused on the technical aspects of watershed analysis, hydrology, and stormwater management. Subsequently, his interest shifted to the design of people-oriented spaces and the creative aspects of landscape projects.

Monty returned to school to study landscape architecture at UC Berkeley Extension. Concurrently, he was able to immediately apply his new skills at a high-end residential landscape firm designing poolside rural retreats and sustainable urban garden spaces using refined materials. After graduating with distinction, Monty turned to public and commercial design opportunities to apply his creativity and technical skills to the wider audience that Carducci Associates affords. He enjoys making a difference in the lives of everyday people by creating functional, sustainable environments such as Willows Shopping Center, Fallon Sports Park, and Cupertino High School. In his new role, Monty looks forward to working on future projects at Carducci Associates and mentoring the next wave of landscape architects.
