Cole's interest in designing accessible urban landscapes stemmed from experiencing the simultaneous rapid urban development of his hometown, Denver, Colorado, and seeing increased public desire for access to the adjacent Rocky Mountains. As an Associate, Cole focuses on the translation of design into built landscapes through construction documentation and technical coordination.
Cole received a Bachelor of Landscape Architecture from Colorado State University where he was the recipient of an ASLA Merit Award. As a student, he worked with the University's transportation department to help visualize upcoming alternative transportation projects on campus. Cole joined MVVA in 2017.
