COGdesign needs qualified volunteer landscape designers and
If you are a student in landscape design/architecture or history program, or a
practicing landscape designer, architect, or historian, we welcome you!
Practicing designers volunteering for COGdesign projects
have an opportunity to become involved in interesting and significant community
projects. Student designers are typically eager to become involved in design
projects outside the classroom that offer an actual client, a timeline, and
budget restrictions. All COG designers are looking for projects that will pay
them back with field experience, portfolio material, and job satisfaction.
Some larger projects are undertaken as classroom projects
or are offered to students as independent thesis projects. We welcome inquiries
from landscape design instructors.
Benefits of becoming a COG designer include:
All COG designers are supported through COG Review, a
monthly design review session for working designers. See our Events
page for the next upcoming meeting. COG Review is facilitated by experienced landscape architects and designers, and
attended by other designers seeking to share challenges, ideas, and support.
Prospective designers are always welcome at COG Review.
Request a designer application by calling 781-642-6662 or emailing email@example.com.
Contact the COGdesign office for information about projects currently in need of
a designer or design team. Watch the web site
and newsletter for new project information as well.
