Floura Teeter Landscape Architects Appoints Lisa Zimmerman as Designer
Baltimore-based landscape architecture firm Floura Teeter Landscape Architects (FTLA) continues to expand with the addition of two new team members: landscape designers Lisa Zimmerman and Woo Kim. Zimmerman brings nine years of experience to FTLA, including extensive work in transportation landscape design. She most recently worked for Columbia-based Sabra-Wang & Associates, a traffic and transportation engineering firm focused on complete streets. Some of Zimmerman's notable recent projects include traffic calming for the City of Baltimore, the Anne Arundel County growth management plan and landscape design guidelines for the City of Rockville. In her new position, Zimmerman will work exclusively with the Maryland State Highway Administration, working out of the SHA office for maximum efficiency. She holds a bachelor's degree in landscape architecture from the University of Maryland. Kim has seven years of experience under his belt, most recently working as a landscape designer and project manager at Samsung Everland Environment Design Group in Korea. He holds degrees in computer graphics and landscape architecture from Baek-Jae Art College and Dan-Kook University, respectively. According to FTLA president and founder Joan Floura, the new hires reflect the trend of growth the firm has experienced throughout 2012, which saw the addition of five new employees since August and a move to a larger space in Mount Vernon. "In 2012, we continued to experience significant growth in our business," Floura says. "The addition of Lisa and Woo to our team will allow us to continue to provide the highest level of service and knowledge to our clients while positioning us for future growth." #### About Floura Teeter Landscape Architects Since 2000, WBE-certified landscape architecture firm FTLA has been helping great ideas take root while keeping transportation, senior living, campus, parks and recreation, urban design and sustainable projects on schedule and under budget.
