David Meyer



David grew up in agrarian Iowa, a sensual landscape characterized by change and geometry. The emotional connection he has with that landscape greatly influences his dreams and his design.

In his 40-year career as a licensed landscape architect, David is principal and founder of Meyer Studio – Land Architects.  Recognized for both his artistry and his ability to build the hell out of stuff, he has directed the design and execution of many prestigious, award-winning projects throughout the world. He is an adjunct professor at the University of California in Berkeley and is a frequent traveling lecturer and critic.  A Fellow of the American Academy in Rome and on the peer review board for the GSA, David has distinguished himself through his passion, character and ability to reveal “ right” physicality. His designs are simple, deliberate marks on the land that speak to their surrounding and employ nature’s palette judiciously.
