Ryan C. Clifton, PLA, ASLA, Associate Principal

Embracing challenges and continually infusing the influence a landscape architect has on project development fuels Ryan Clifton. Having worked in the Caribbean, Latin America and Asia, he understands the significance history and culture play in planning and how it ultimately directs design. He enjoys researching a site’s historic value, studying man-made and natural land uses and collaborating with clients for the best possible outcome. He is actively involved in EDSA’s international expansion leading hospitality and residential commissions in Brazil, Mexico and China.

Bachelor of Landscape Architecture, Oklahoma State University. Joined EDSA in 1999.

“It is our responsibility to treat each and every assignment as an opportunity to learn, teach and explore the possibilities that creatively and functionally address each circumstance. It is this opportunity, along with understanding and respecting the history and culture of a particular place that make for a convincing and sustainable design solution.”
