Pat is currently a Landscape Architect and Urban Designer at Rundell Ernstberger Associates (REA). His contributions include responsibilities in all phases of design including public meetings, conceptual design, presentation graphics, photorealistic renderings, 3-D modeling, construction detailing, and construction administration. His education combined with experience in all phases of a project have allowed Pat to develop imaginative, creative solutions through thoughtful planning and design.
Prior to joining REA, Pat worked at a Landscape Architecture firm in Nashville, TN gaining experience in a unique region of the country. He provided production support for various public and private projects including an urban riverfront park, plazas, greenroofs, amenity decks, institutions, and multiple planting schemes.
Pat has experience in a broad scope of projects. The Nashville Riverfront Master Plan and phase 1 park development was a city project that examined the impacts of the Cumberland River floodplain and implementation of a new park that acts as a communal, purposeful space for downtown visitors and residents while controlling flood waters that plagued the city in 2010. Pat has designed and developed documents for a contemporary playscape for Tarkington Park in Indianapolis that required public meetings and input from the city that needed to be integrated in a thoughtful manner. Pat was project manager of a phase 1 project for the University of Indianapolis and University Heights Neighborhood that required trail marker and trail design of the Health Loop that will connect the neighborhood with the university, an elementary school, and public park.
At present, Pat is developing a plaza design Ball State University that aims to activate space between two academic buildings. He is also working with planners on a downtown development plan for the city of Greenwood that examines the creation and connection of public open space within an organized arrangement of development parcels. He has been involved with space planning, programming, coordination with planners, client meetings, and presentations.
