Eric Gordon

Principal, Landscape Architect

Eric is a fully accredited Landscape Architect and LEED® (Leadership in Environmental Energy and Design) accredited professional who holds a Bachelor of Landscape Architecture from the University of Guelph, and a Masters of Landscape Architecture in Urban Design from Harvard University.

With a start in residential design and construction in 2001, Eric has since worked on a variety of project types and scales in six continents – from small urban parks to new official plans to new-city master plans.

Eric founded Optimicity in 2011 with the goal of maintaining an intentionally diverse project portfolio that reflects an effort to solve urban and landscape problems of all sorts.

Bringing a broad scope of interest and experience to each project helps Eric to produce elegant design solutions that not only fulfill the client’s core needs, but are also environmentally sensitive, budget conscious, innovative, evocative and of course, beautiful.
