Three Alumni Named Partners At Reed Hilderbrand

Reed Hilderbrand Landscape Architecture of Cambridge, Massachusetts announces the expansion of its leadership through the elevation of four new partners, including three University of Virginia alumni: John Grove, ASLA (BA ’84, MLA ’88); John Kett, ASLA (BA ’92, MLA ’98); and John Christopher Moyles, ASLA (MLA ’90). Each principal has contributed to the enrichment and growth of the award-winning practice founded by Douglas Reed, FASLA, and Gary Hilderbrand, FASLA. The newly elevated partners have worked with the firm since 2000 or earlier. The six partners and four associate principals, leading Reed Hilderbrand’s staff of forty-three landscape architects and designers, are engaged on diverse commissions across the United States, Europe, and in South America. 

John Grove, ASLA, joined Reed Hilderbrand after previous experience at SWA Group, Child Associates, and Hargreaves Associates. Originally from Charlottesville, VA, Grove served as project manager for the firm’s renewal of the Beck House in Dallas, TX, among many other private residences. Grove is the principal-in-charge for a new quadrangle at Yale University, the redevelopment of Cambridge’s Volpe Center by MITIMCO, and the landscape renewal of the Breakers Mansions of Newport, RI.

John Kett, ASLA, a native of Charlottesville, VA, is responsible for Reed Hilderbrand’s work on the Clyfford Still Museum of Denver, CO; Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, AR; and numerous projects at Brandeis University, Kett today leads design of the expansion of the Sydney and Walda Bestoff Sculpture Garden at the New Orleans Museum of Art. He is a member of the Dean’s Advisory Board at UVA School of Architecture.

John Christopher Moyles, ASLA, originally from Williamsburg, VA, is a graduate of Virginia Commonwealth University and UVA. Moyles is responsible for the realization of Long Dock Park, recent recipient of the 2015 ASLA Award of Excellence for Design, as well as the Poetry Foundation in Chicago, IL, and the Parrish Art Museum of Water Mill, NY. Moyles leads the design of the Betty and Edward Marcus Sculpture Park in Austin, TX, and multiple projects within the emerging Waterfront District of Tampa, FL. Earlier this year the Boston Society of Landscape Architects (BSLA), the nation’s first chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects, elected Chris Moyles to be its next president.
