Ten Eyck Landscape Architects
Founding Principal Christine Ten Eyck is a key collaborator in the design and management of all projects, infusing the studio’s broad range of work with a sensitivity to place and passion for human and ecological well-being.
A rafting trip down the Colorado River in Arizona inspired Christine to move from her native Texas to Phoenix, where the environment’s harsh beauty called her to reimagine how landscape architecture might better engage its distinguishing elements to enhance the experience of place.
Beginning in 1997, Christine and her studio were among the first to respond to the need for water conservation by integrating water harvesting technologies and xeric planting to create enriching outdoor environments with a contemporary native aesthetic.
Christine’s approach continues to evolve as it engages the unique cultures and ecoregions of the Texas, demonstrating her desire and ability to engage the specific opportunities and constraints of any given location. Drawing upon her intuition, knowledge, and experience, Christine’s designs continue to respond to context, celebrate native ecologies, promote water conservation, and utilize local materials to create enriching, high-performance landscapes that stimulate the senses.
Christine received her Bachelor of Landscape Architecture from Texas Tech University. She became a Fellow of the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) in 2003 and is a registered landscape architect in Arizona, Oklahoma, New Mexico and Texas.
