Going beyond design to understand the social, ecological, and process facets in the landscape is how Kelly finds creative, resilient solutions that influence a community. He provides urban design expertise to make connections between people and places, movement and urban form, and nature and the built fabric.
Kelly's goal is to make urban, suburban, and rural areas functional, attractive, and sustainable. As the practice leader and senior associate of Urban Design and Landscape Architecture for our Kansas City office, Kelly and his more than 30 years of experience have influenced local, regional, and national communities through creative design and master planning.
Kelly’s expertise is illustrated in various project types including parks and recreation design, sports facility design, learning environments, signage and wayfinding design, landscape design, green infrastructure planning, stormwater management, environmental restoration, and real-estate master planning.
