Election to the ASLA Council of Fellows is among the highest honors the ASLA bestows on members and is based on their works, leadership and management, knowledge and service.
Kas Kinkead of Cascade Design Collaborative received her nomination, in Service, from the Washington Chapter. Kinkead is a recognized leader in Seattle and at the state and national levels, elevating her profession in the eyes of decision makers when she advocates for sustainable building, green infrastructure, and superlative public K-12 educational facilities. She is a member and twice chair of Washington State’s Technical Advisory Committee on publicly funded K-12 schools. Kas’s talent for persuasion grows from her remarkable ability to personalize projects and her encyclopedic understanding of K-12 educational goals, community values, and age-appropriate connections to landscape. She is a long-time advocate for women in the design professions making her an inspiration to her colleagues and a role model of effective leadership.
