Kristin Frederickson


Principal Kristin Frederickson’s work has centered on historically and culturally significant sites for private, institutional, and public clients and on how to honor legacy while meeting the moment of our time. Kristin brings an uncompromising commitment to the specificity of a site and to engaging questions of beauty, authenticity, performance and equity. With the practice since 2006, she has contributed to the design and implementation of many well-known projects, including the Cranbrook 2030 vision plan and the rehabilitation and expansion of the Edwin Lutyens-designed estate Marsh Court, for which the firm received the ASLA Award of Excellence. She is currently leading the Franklin Park Action Plan for Boston’s largest public park and Longwood Reimagined, the ambitious renewal of Longwood Gardens’ western conservatory complex and surrounding 13 acres of gardens, which will feature a new Mediterranean garden under glass.
