New Team Members in May 2024

Spring is here and along with the growing flowers Osborn has been doing some growing as well. In these past few months alone, we have had the delight of adding ten new talented, passionate, and creative people to our team.  

Each time we have the pleasure of adding a new team member, they bring with them their own unique skillset and Osborn grows in our technical and operational capabilities. Take some time to get to know them and find out who helped build a house from scratch, who is a nature photographer, and who makes pottery in their spare time. 

Celebrating World Landscape Architecture Month

April showers bring May flowers and May flowers make Landscape Architects happy. Speaking of which, Osborn is celebrating World Landscape Architecture Month this year by getting to know two of our talented Landscape Designers, Matt Olszewski and Lauren Iversen, PLA. We sat down with Matt and Lauren to learn more about what draws them to the profession and what they are working on these days.

The purpose of this scholarship is to eradicate the historic barriers that have prevented BIPOC individuals from accessing these professions throughout the history of the United States.

We are excited to witness the practical and creative design solutions scholarship recipients will create in the future!
