Firm Resumé


ARNOLD ASSOCIATES, landscape architects and site planners established in Princeton, New Jersey in 1971 by Henry Arnold (emeritus), has executed over 700 commissions. The Firm’s work covers many various site conditions and client needs in the United States and abroad. Our disciplines cover a range including site layout, irrigation, drainage design, and vehicular and pedestrian circulation, grading and planting design. The Firm specializes in urban tree planting techniques for sustainable urban street trees. These disciplines have been applied in the context of urban spaces, parks, commercial, mixed use developments, residential, retail institutional and civic projects.

The office is a partnership organized to allow involvement of the Principal from the conceptual design to project completion. The policy of maintaining a highly trained in-house staff and associating with the best specialist consultants has proven an effective way to secure both economy of operation and excellence of design.

Past commissions vary in scale and complexity, ranging from major open spaces and memorials on the Washington, DC Mall, to the more restrictive design for a small interior plaza in Rockefeller Center, Manhattan. The large number of these projects that have been built and their durability provides a measure of the firm’s effectiveness as rigorous professionals and artists.
