Josh Andersson, PLA

Landscape Architect

Inspired by the public site design in Stockholm Sweden, Josh knew this career path was for him after leaving the photography industry.

With more than a decade of landscape design experience, Josh will be responsible for landscape design and planning in a variety of markets to enhance EEA’s landscape architecture portfolio. Josh earned a Master of Landscape Architecture from the Illinois Institute of Technology. He is based out of our Chicago office and is a registered Landscape Architect in Illinois.

Prior to joining EEA, Josh developed his design experience at Landscape Architecture-specific firms on a variety of project types. In various environments that specialized in teaming with Architects and Engineers, Josh comes in with project collaboration experience. This includes public and private education projects such as elementary and middle school site enhancements and artificial turf fields. At the higher education level, the project focus has been on new buildings, which often require site design, campus, or city integration including work at Illinois Institute of Technology, University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, Columbia College Chicago, and City Colleges of Chicago.

Josh also engaged in the public sector including Park District and City/County transportation projects including the Navy Pier re-vitalization. His involvement often began at the Master Plan process, which included community presentation boards through the Construction Documents and Administration phases. For the Navy Pier re-vitalization, Josh provided Construction Administration including plant substitutions and installations and graphic design. As an avid cyclist, Josh was glad to be part of two connecting links in off-road bike trails in the Village of Skokie and Forest Preserve District as well as Road Diets in the City of Chicago and Village of Oak Park. He also worked on various projects in the commercial civil design industry and has been successful in coordinating between City Planners and Clients to get projects built.

Josh enjoys participating in endurance events outside of the office and is involved with F3 Nation, a boot camp workout group. When it comes to sports, he is a huge rugby fan. He will likely be watching the Chicago Lions, USA Eagles, or the British & Irish Lions. Josh also enjoys spending time with his daughters and participating in all interests they might have.
