Julie Canter is a Professional Landscape Architect with over fifteen years of experience leading complex projects within the United States and abroad. At SWA/Balsley, Julie brings strategic thinking, design vision, and knowledge of constructability to the management of the studio as well as the project work.
Julie’s work spans both the public and private sector, often working within dense urban environments. Her previous work at PWP Landscape Architecture includes Jewel Changi Airport and Marina Bay Sands IR, both in Singapore with Safdie Architects as well as Constitution Gardens on the National Mall and the Colorado Esplanade in Santa Monica, CA. In all of her work, Julie is focused on creating immersive environments that modulate space between large scale architectural moves and the pedestrian scaled environment – where people can play, relax, reflect, and enjoy. Julie is both LEED and WEDG accredited and strives to design and implement sustainable and resilient systems within contemporary design.
