Jules Krinsky, PLA
A landscape architect, urban designer, and creative problem-solver, Jules Krinsky is experienced in projects of all sizes, including residential, institutional, and commercial developments, civic and cultural properties, mobility studies, and American embassies around the world. He values a hands-on, multidisciplinary approach to design, from the earliest conceptual phases through construction administration.
Mary Zimmerman has contributed to the design, preservation, and ecological restoration of prominent public parks and cemeteries throughout the New York City metropolitan area, including historic Olmsted properties such as Prospect Park in Brooklyn and Branch Brook Park in Newark, New Jersey. Mary’s ability to navigate complex projects, from the preliminary planning, funding, and public review phases through design documentation and on-site construction administration make her a valuable contributor to RHI teams.
For projects both close to home and overseas, Jake Fettig designs landscapes that reflect a sensitivity to culture, context, and long-term sustainability. He believes in landscape architecture as a vital ingredient in creating communities that are vibrant, equitable, and healthy. Jake advocates for the thoughtful integration of ecological measures within the urban realm, and in connecting people with the natural environment in ways that inspire, heal, and delight.
Christopher Nelson believes that landscape architecture can play an indelible role in creating memorable places that engage, connect, inform, and inspire. His portfolio spans the Eastern Seaboard, and includes landscape designs for civic, institutional, and cultural settings; commercial and residential properties; and academic campuses. His passion for social justice and community-driven narrative and his skill in historic research inform his work as a designer, creating inclusive places where every voice has agency and the power to shape the landscape.
Ting Huang, PLA, SITES, AP
Ting Huang has diverse experience in landscape planning and design, from parks, streetscapes, and residential communities to institutional campuses and recreational properties. She is skilled in engaging community stakeholders through public meetings, design charrettes, and illustrative renderings; and excels in the development of project documentation and specifications.
Jason brings a curious and thoughtful perspective to his work as a landscape designer and horticulturist. Prior to joining RHI, Jason worked on a variety of projects from large brownfield reuse sites to resilient waterfronts and new residential backyards. His passion is in the construction and details of a project. Through research and exploring the unique context and history of each site, he finds opportunities to reflect and celebrate that context throughout design.
