intern | designer

Luke is a summer intern with Genus and currently a 4th year Landscape Architecture student at Iowa State University. Luke sees landscape architecture not only as a way to design functional and beautiful spaces for people, but also as a critical component of designing functional ecosystems for flora and fauna. Designing spaces that inspire an appreciation of the natural world is what drives Luke’s passion for landscape architecture. Originally from Rock Island, Illinois, Luke grew up exploring the midwestern landscape as far back as he can remember. Luke has experience working for design-build companies and nurseries in both Iowa and Illinois and hopes to further his professional knowledge at Genus working on a variety of projects and learning more about the rapidly changing social-environmental context of our cities.
