Luke’s appreciation for landscape is rooted in his upbringing on a farm in rural Iowa. His design aesthetic is influenced by the simple elegance of the farmland and his appreciation of the urban context. Since joining MVVA, Luke has contributed to the design and construction documentation for the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial and Leonor K. Sullivan Boulevard and Riverfront projects in St. Louis, MO, as well as a residential project in upstate NY.
Luke received a Bachelor of Landscape Architecture from Iowa State University, where he was the recipient of the ALSA Honor Award. While pursuing his degree, he worked at a nursery gaining hands-on knowledge of plants and planting.
Luke joined MVVA in 2011 as an intern and became a full-time employee in 2012.
