GLEN DAKE, PRINCIPAL

Glen Dake is a leader in the design of landscape, transportation, and school improvements in Southern California neighborhoods, where he has practiced since 1987.  In 1996 he founded a practice to deliver professional landscape services to the building industry, institutions, and community groups, including: Macerich Corp, LA County, The Los Angeles Conservation Corps, The City of Burbank and The City of West Hollywood, LAUSD, UCLA and UCSD. In 2001 he served on LA Council President Eric Garcetti’s staff for his first four year term to lead his successful Green Agenda.


The design of environments for youth is an important part of Mr. Dake’s practice.  His work includes prominent campus improvements at UCLA and at UCSD’s Scripps Institution of Oceanography; as well as the innovative outdoor learning environment for Los Angeles’ High Tech High School, and numerous playgrounds, community gardens and childcare environments.  He has conducted planning and policy work that fosters local solutions to protect Southern California watersheds and to enhance groundwater and surface water resources.

Mr. Dake has organized numerous public participation programs for major open space and road improvements including those at two historic landscapes: Silver Lake Reservoir and Barnsdall Park in Los Angeles.  He is recognized for his ability to communicate clearly, to create a climate of collaboration among diverse groups, and to achieve complex objectives. 


Mr. Dake practiced in several distinguished Landscape Architectural offices early in his career including service with Emmet L. Wemple and Associates as a Senior Associate, with Design Workshop in Aspen and Denver, as an Associate with Andrew Spurlock Martin Poirier Landscape Architects in San Diego, as a team captain at The SWA Group in Laguna Beach.
