Dustin Smith, PLA, LEED AP ND, Associate

Dustin is a landscape architect, deep thinker, creative tinkerer, and a writer. He joined Wolf Josey in 2018 well versed in the study of town and city morphology, cultural landscapes, ecological restoration, and green infrastructure. Dustin’s interests, and subsequent work, has become increasingly focused on natural systems design, stormwater management, and thriving tree communities within the context of urban and rural environments.

Invested in the design of his local communities, Dustin formerly served as an Advisory Committee Member for the Fairfax County Office of Community Revitalization, helping to develop design and planning guidelines for future development along Reston, Virginia’s silver line metro stations. Prior to Wolf Josey, Dustin worked as a Project Manager at Rhodeside & Harwell for five years, with a focus on parks & campuses, embassies, and streetscape projects.

With specific interest in stormwater, he focused on city-wide green infrastructure planning in Washington, D.C., all the way down to innovative detailing practices for the construction of rainwater runnels, bioretention planters, and rain gardens. Many of these practices are being constructed at embassies in Jakarta, Tegucigalpa, and Vientiane.
