Kara Gadecki
Designer
Kara is originally from Southern New Hampshire, where she grew up surrounded by a New England landscape of forests, streams, and granite outcroppings. This upbringing shaped her view of landscape as a place to explore, experience, and enjoy with other people. Her love of landscape and urbanism is also inspired by summers spent as a kayak and paddleboard guide on Tybee Island, a coastal barrier island in Georgia, and a semester abroad in Barcelona, where she explored the influence of Gaudi on the city.

Kara received a B.A. in architecture from Carnegie Mellon University in 2017, and is completing her Masters of Landscape Architecture from the Harvard Graduate School of Design. Her interest in fabrication and detailing led her to work as a teaching assistant at the Harvard CNC router, a triple-axis milling machine, advising on how to make models and other objects. In her spare time, she enjoys painting in watercolor.
