Peak Experience Receives ASLA Merit Award fro the ASLA Northern California Chapter


Drawing from the nearly 53 hills that frame San Francisco’s diverse neighborhoods, Peak Experience re-conceives San Francisco’s hills into a series of undulating mounds that promote the integration of play in the urban fabric. In response to often static streetscape design models, Peak Experience re-imagines three iconic hills of San Francisco (Nob Hill, Russian Hill and Telegraph Hill) into a flexible play surface, providing an opportunity for safe play along Market Street while educating the community about San Francisco’s unique landscape.

The Dune Featured in Sactown Magazine


"A local landscape designer is setting her sights on the riverfront as a new hotspot for urban development. At this year’s Emerge Summit for young professionals on March 18, Sacramento native Kimberly Garza debuted her proposal to create a semi-permanent urban beach installation along the West Sacramento side of the riverfront. She won first prize in the Pitch for Change competition at the summit, which called for creative ideas to improve Sacramento, and was awarded $4,500 worth of mentorship, marketing and advising from East Sacramento marketing firm Uptown Studios."

Thinkfast Exhibit


The exhibition showcases and collectively deconstructs all stages of the conceptual design process, with sketches and built works by students, early-career practitioners and such well-established designers. From rough to more resolved, the show traces layers of the designer’s investment as an idea first becomes visible both through traditional as well as more contemporary imaging methods. The interdisciplinary collection is to be exhibited at three distinguished academic venues (Ball State University in Indiana, Kansas State University, and the School of Design Strategies at Parsons in New York City) in the 2015-2016 academic year.
