Jason Medeiros, Lead Designer
“The more we reinforce lessons with the context of the world around us, the stronger they become. Just as we learn from our family, our teachers, our role models, lessons can be reinforced in the landscape around us: on the way to school, between classes, at the park and on the playground."
Jason’s motivation for entering the design field comes from fourteen years working in environmental education, teaching in underserved communities, and a desire to bring creative and educational works to the public realm. He holds a Master's Degree in Landscape Architecture, a field chosen because of its flexibility, ties with ecology, and his desire to work with interpretive landscapes and outdoor spaces. This breadth of experience gives Jason a unique outlook on education, one that emphasizes embodied learning–connected with place, activity and exploration. The same experience also drives an interest in places imbued with lessons and stories, places that speak to our sense of aesthetic, responsibility and intellectual curiosity. He continues to teach 6th grade science with Rainier Scholars, an after school program dedicated to educational excellence for students of color.
