GP Practice Information

Gustafson Porter (GP) is an International Landscape Design practice based in London. GP operates across the diverse disciplines of landscape, architecture, engineering and design. The work of the practice expresses the tension and balance between opposing forces in the built and the natural world which is striking and contemporary. GP is inspired by the complexity of the human condition and the desire for stability as well as change in the modern world. The approach is simultaneously rational and emotional, disciplined but loose, structured yet ever changing.

Kathryn Gustafson established her landscape architecture practice in Paris in 1980 working as a sole practitioner and in collaboration with architects, artists and engineers. Her completed work in France encompasses a wide range of landscape projects from parks such as Fragments of Garden History (Les Jardins de l’Imaginaires) in Terrasson, landscapes associated with major buildings including the headquarters for Shell, Esso and L’Oréal near Paris and urban squares including The Square of Human Rights in Evry and Square Rachmaninov in Paris.

Gustafson Porter Ltd was founded by Kathryn Gustafson and Neil Porter in 1997, with Mary Bowman joining the partnership in 2002. GP has projects in the UK, Europe, Asia and the Middle East. Completed projects range from the 1km long Westergasfabriek Culture Park in Amsterdam to the interior landscape of the Great Glass House at the National Botanic Garden of Wales. GP is currently (at time of writing) working on landscapes for the cities of Singapore, Jeddah, Beirut and Liverpool, all with varying needs and contexts that require innovative and unique solutions.

In 2000 Kathryn Gustafson, with partners Jennifer Guthrie, and Shannon Nichol, established the practice Gustafson Guthrie Nichol Ltd (GGN) in Seattle, with current projects predominantly located within the US and Asia.
