Andrew Wickham joined LPA shortly after graduating Cal Poly in 2007. Since then, his practice has grown to fit the many project types and scales LPA is known for. Though he has experience across multiple market segments, half of his work has been focused on designing sustainable outdoor learning environments on education projects all over California and Texas.

Andrew is a Project Leader at LPA, a national integrated design firm. Andrew’s primary focus is to design at the intersection of built, cultural, and natural systems. He is a champion of integrated design and works closely with the project team to lead the design of enriching outdoor environments which bring nuanced social and cultural opportunities to users. He has experience working at all scales of projects, from planning to implementation.  His interest lies in how the blending of built elements with the natural environment can enhance a user’s experience and reinforce values of equity, ecology, and curiosity. Andrew is a proven thinker and strategist, leading workshops and lectures at conferences all over the U.S. about the importance of performative landscapes to the human experience. His passion for evidence-based design, education, and sustainability come through in every project he works on, big or small.

Andrew is very active within the American Society of Landscape Architects and has served as Trustee of the California Sierra Chapter as well as President of the California Council of ASLA. He helped to create the Emerging Professional Groups in both the California Southern and California Sierra chapters, and is a co-creator of the mobile outreach platform “Park-In-A-Box” within the California Sierra Chapter.  Through the years, he has also served on several local and national committees and has held several positions on the California Sierra Chapter Executive Committee including President and Vice President.  His sustained passion and tireless dedication to the profession was recognized in 2022 with the Sierra Chapter ASLA Legacy Award.  While attending Cal Poly as a student, his body of work was recognized with the inaugural Design Excellence Award, in recognition of outstanding achievement in design throughout his educational career.
