KenKay Associates - About Ken Kay Kenneth Kay Kenneth J. Kay, FASLA Founder, Principal Planner, and Designer Ken Kay, FASLA, is a landscape architect and urban designer, with more than 30 years of experience running his own office in San Francisco . Throughout his career, Ken has focused on creating significant vision concepts and detail drawings for a large array of planning and design projects, both locally and abroad. Before founding Ken Kay Associates in San Francisco in 1983, He worked as a partner with two eminent landscape architects and planners: Charles Currier, from 1969 to 1975 in the firm of CR3 Inc. in Avon , Connecticut ; and with Garrett Eckbo at EckboKay Associates in San Francisco , from 1975 to 1983. Ken has successfully completed a full range of commissions that range in scale from private residences to new towns. Whether working on urban centers, city neighborhoods, waterfronts, workplaces, or recreating suburbs, Ken lays the groundwork for compact, vital sustainable communities that respect the natural environment and link it into the urbanism of the place on a regional and local scale. Ken has also been an early advocate for reclaiming urban waterfronts, recycling leftover land including brown and gray field sites and conserving water within our cities and towns. Though ambitious, his planning and designs enjoy an excellent reputation for getting built within the context of a range of sustainable solutions, project budgets and schedules. His concepts are substantially approved in public hearings and approvals are gained through successful outcomes from community participation and governing bodies of both the public and private sectors that understand and promote Smart Growth principles. Ken has served for three decades as an urban design advisor to many Cities, Foundations, Local Government Commissions, Developers and Corporate clients on major projects in the USA and China . Ken is one of the original chapter members of the Congress for the New Urbanism formed in 1993; he also co-chaired CNU's first Environmental Task Force from 1994 to 1998. In 2006, the American Society of Landscape Architects honored Ken with a Fellowship. He has also addressed and made presentations throughout the U.S. and China including The International Summit of China in 2005, where he addressed a major conference in Guangzhou as a US Expert on urban, transit-oriented sustainable planning concepts; the 2009 International US/CHINA Green tech Summit in Beijing , China presenting the success of the NASA Research Park The University Associates' Leading-edge sustainable community model, located at Moffett Field, California . Others include the Mayor's Institute on City Design; the Annual New Partners for Smart Growth Conferences; the Annual Building Livable, Sustainable Communities Conferences in Yosemite National Park ; The City Managers Conference and the Congress for New Urbanism. Ken's work has been recognized with a number of national awards and major publications. Kenneth Kay, FASLA Founder and President
