Jessica Clements works on a range of project types which focus on a multi-disciplinary approach to design. While her work at Studio Outside is focused on landscape architecture, Jessica is a LEED-accredited registered Architect giving her a unique perspective on design that is relatable between the two professions.
Jessica's work is inspired by the idea of creating experiential and unique places through a consciousness of the ecological systems they are integrated within. While this notion can be found in a wide array of project types her work at Studio Outside has a focused effort on the space between the buildings- having worked on several large retail and multi-family residential projects. She brings forward an ability design and communicate the project well through the various stages of the project: from conceptual design shown through meaningful and persuasive graphics to the technical detailing of construction documents. Jessica has been an integrated team member to several notable projects at Studio Outside, including: Oakbrook Center in Oak Brook, Illinois; The Midtown Green as a piece of the Midtown Vision Plan here in Dallas, Texas; and The Star – a 92-acre development in the heart of Frisco and home to the Dallas Cowboys. Additionally, prior to working at Studio Outside, she has contributed to two ASLA National Excellence in Planning Awards for work done on the Viet Village Urban Farm and the Scout Island Urban Forest Strategic Plan (both in New Orleans, LA).
Jessica has two masters' degrees from Washington University in Saint Louis, in Architecture and Urban Design respectively, and a BS in Architecture from the University of Minnesota. Outside of Studio Outside, she enjoys dabbling in triathlons, and running or cycling as a way of experiencing the city and recruiting some endorphins.
