Jenna Matthews

Intern Landscape Architect

Jenna holds a Bachelor of Landscape Architecture degree from the University of Guelph, where she graduated with distinction. In her final year of studies, she was awarded an American Society of Landscape Architects Award of Merit. Her final design studio project focused on urban flood resiliency and the use of green infrastructure for flood management. The project specifically looked at adapting an industrial area along the Fort Point Channel of Boston, Massachusetts into a livable and sustainable mixed-use district. The project addressed issues related to sea level rise and increased storm surges brought about by climate change, while activating a vibrant waterfront and improving coastal health. In 2014 she was awarded first place in the Ontario Stone, Sand, and Gravel Association student design competition and she was the recipient of the 2014 Garden Club of Toronto scholarship.  

At O2, Jenna’s role is to support the design team on a wide range of projects. She assists at various stages of the design process to prepare inventory and analysis mapping, graphic representation of drawings, construction drawings and more.
