Scott Jordan,
Principal

 

As a Principal of Civitas, Scott is responsible for the day-to-day operations of the office and plays a prominent role in establishing, maintaining, and curating the culture of our interdisciplinary practice. The transformative effect that landscape architecture and urban design have on cities is what drew Scott to this profession nearly 20 years ago. Scott has developed a passion for engaging the public throughout the design process, further deepening the relationships between people and place. His focus on the public realm is driven by a desire to create social interactions and build a sense of community by bringing people of diverse backgrounds together. A prime example of this commitment was his design effort for the St. Patrick’s Island and the North Embarcadero Improvements to San Diego’s waterfront. Scott has led large-scale, complex projects across the country such as the Balboa Park Master Plan in San Diego, the Los Angeles River Revitalization Master Plan, as well as the design of the Ann and Jim Goodnight Museum Park in Raleigh.

Scott holds a Master of Landscape Architecture and a Bachelor of Environmental Design from University of Manitoba in Winnipeg. He has won several national design awards for his work, been an invited lecturer and guest critic at universities across the country and has presented at numerous national design conferences. Scott is active in the community through his volunteer work as an underprivileged youth hockey coach each summer as well as helping coach his son’s lacrosse team.
