2020 Keynote

Adam Greenspan

Adam Greenspan is a directing partner at PWP Landscape Architecture and has been the lead designer on a wide range of projects including public parks, campuses, mixed use developments, design competitions and private estates. He became a California Certified Nurseryperson in 1996 and has brought his passion for plants to his work at PWP.
Adam led the design of Salesforce Transit Center Park since the initial design competition in 2007 through its opening. PWP conceived of the park as an integral part of the building and the neighborhood from the start, with a focus on the incredible array of plants that are particularly suited to grow in San Francisco. Salesforce Park is conceived as a compact, accessible and experientially intense botanical garden in the middle of the densest and hardest part of the city providing multifunctional green space for respite, activity and education. 
His additional recent projects include: Jewel Changi Airport, Singapore; Glenstone Museum, Potomac, MD; Colorado Esplanade, Santa Monica; Newport Beach Civic Center and Park; and Marina Bay Sands Integrated Resort, Singapore.  Adam has served on public art selection panels for the City of San Jose and the City of Santa Monica and served as the president of the Landscape Architecture Foundation.
