David Godshall

Principal, Co-Founder, Terremoto
David Godshall is a Principal and Co-Founder of Terremoto, a twenty-seven person landscape architectural design studio split between Los Angeles and San Francisco. Terremoto's projects scale and type are eclectic by design, as the studio enjoys both small projects and big projects, private work and public work, as well as the renegade ecological restoration project to keep things a bit feral! The subtexts that permeate through all their projects, regardless of scale, are an interest in doing right by land, prioritizing the health of the creatures with whom we share the earth, employing low carbon and hyperlocal materials in their projects and in the constant examination of the design industry's problematic relationship to labor (in hopes of improving it).
