Clayton Beaudoin, Principal, PLA
In becoming a landscape architect, Clayton is excited to have the opportunity to do work that enriches his own life, and more importantly the lives of his friends and the broader community. Clayton’s background with environmental organizations and technology consulting has fostered an “agent of change” approach to his work, in which he aims to challenge the status quo in the creation of a better place to live and play.
As someone with deep roots in the Pacific Northwest, Clayton’s enthusiasm for the place shows up in his work. He strives to design with the local ecology in mind and has been active in the development of the Sustainable Sites Initiative. He is passionate about community-driven design and works hard to make his projects more sustainable, place-based and always more playful.
This playfulness is manifested in the creation of several signature parks, including features such as spray grounds, nature play areas and community gardens. He also “plays” coach for his daughter’s soccer team and loves the game of baseball.
