Landscape Designer

“Design is a way of imagining and telling new stories and reviving old ones, describing the shape of a possible future.”

– Anne Whiston Spirn

A recent grad from the University of Arkansas, Fay Jones School of Architecture, Kate Dunn is the newest member of the Talley Associates team. Her passions for environmental restoration and the integration of nature into urban society have been the driving forces behind her involvement in various projects. Over the past year alone, Dunn has worked to develop a plan to reconnect Arkansas’ largest wetland, Fourche Creek, to its surrounding neighborhoods in Little Rock; worked as a team on a competition to develop a trail system for the City of Little Rock’s Otter Creek neighborhood, resulting in a winning design; and a policy proposal to transform the polluted city of Cleveland by using low-impact development and storm water management strategies. In addition to her participation in these large-scale projects, Dunn has also been involved with Arkansas’ student chapter ASLA, where she has volunteered with a group of Girl Scouts, overseeing the design and construction of a rain garden and bioswale at the Botanical Garden of the Ozarks in Fayetteville.
