Jack Ohly
Senior Associate
Jack's design sensibility draws from his background in fine arts, music and arboriculture. At MVVA, Jack guided the design of the landscape at the Menil Collection, a 30-acre museum and "art neighborhood" in Houston, from framework plan through the completion of the Gateway project and the construction of the landscape at the Menil Drawing Institute, which will be completed in the spring of 2017. Jack has managed work at the scale of regional planning for the Boston Waterfront, as well as small projects including a rooftop garden in Brooklyn Heights and a custom private playground in Dutchess County. His appreciation for plants and his innovative approach to craft have led him to play a key role in the planting and furnishing design of a number of projects, including the Coney Island Amphitheater, the 606 Trail in Chicago and Lewis Center for the Arts at Princeton University.

Jack earned a Bachelor of Visual Arts from Brown University. He received a Master of Landscape Architecture from the University of Pennsylvania, where he was awarded the Faculty Medal and the National Olmsted Scholar Award.

Jack joined MVVA in 2012.
