Bill Elliot


As a life-long musician, Bill finds that abstract concepts such as rhythm, harmony, and sequence form a palette to articulate individual design elements and the relationships between elements. He recognizes that “performance” may not only frame landscape plantings and systems, but it is also a lens to evaluate how people interact with the site, thereby creating opportunities for people to discover, explore, learn, and interact within a site enables them to become performers in the experience of place.

Bill strives to synthesize design concepts with contextual cues that demonstrate responsiveness to existing conditions while revealing a fresh approach to experiencing space. Having grown up in Upstate New York, he has a strong interest in the palimpsest of history and cultural touchstones and enjoys the act of discovering how these components may inform design to honor the site.

Bill received a Master of Landscape Architecture from the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry and a Master of Architectural Sciences (Concentration in Acoustics) from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. Additionally, he holds Bachelor’s degrees in Art & Design and Physics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
