Brad Thornton, ASLA, LEED AP


Brad’s breadth of his experience includes work on a variety of projects of different scales including parks, plazas, streetscapes, and academic and corporate campus design and masterplans. Never one to shy away from complex site challenges, he is as passionate about the function and aesthetic quality of urban sites as he is about protecting and enhancing the natural environment.

A teacher and mentor, Brad is currently an adjunct instructor at the University of Pennsylvania’s Weitzman School of Design and guest lecturer and critic at other Philadelphia colleges, including Temple University. Brad holds a Bachelor of Landscape Architecture degree from Temple University and studied in Rome with Temple’s International Study Abroad. He is a registered landscape architect in Pennsylvania and a LEED Accredited Professional.

When not in the office much of Brad’s energy goes into his family, restoring his 1940’s house, tending his small flock of chickens, and caring for his ever-expanding garden including a food crop garden, pollinator-friendly habitat, and a rain garden.
