Emily Scott

senior associate - washington, dc


Emily Scott brings strong conceptual thinking skills and an intuitive, hands-on working style to GGN. Previous academic study of world religions and philosophy strongly influences her approach to design. Emily is particularly interested in landscape as a setting for social and environmental narratives, and in the use of landscape to offer physical and intellectual experiences of place to the individual as well as to the larger community.

Emily enjoys coordinating complex systems such as landscape over structure and interactive water features. As a project manager and construction administrator, Emily’s creativity and sensitive approach have shaped projects ranging in scale from master plan to streetscape, both public and private. Emily managed and led construction of CityCenterDC, and has managed CityCenter Hotel, UW School of Medicine Phase 3.1, and The National Great Blacks in Wax Museum. Emily holds a Masters Degree in Landscape Architecture from the University of Pennsylvania. An avid horsewoman, Emily can often be found at the barn when outside the GGN studio.
