David Godshall Principal / Owner (MLA, PLA, ASLA)
David Godshall is a landscape architect, horticultural theorist and the design director of the Terremoto office in Los Angeles, which he founded with Alain Peauroi in 2012. Terremoto, though a young practice, has grown quickly and established itself as a driving force in the world of landscape architecture. David’s strategic approach to design is inherently rooted in philosophy and the idea that ecology, horticulture and landscape have transformative physical and metaphorical impacts upon a person and a place.
David received a master’s degree Cum Laude from UC Berkeley after receiving a BA Cum Laude from UC Santa Barbara. He holds CLARB registration in California and is an ASLA Olmsted Scholar, representing UC Berkeley’s selection the year of his graduation. Prior to founding Terremoto, David worked at Peter Walker and Partners in Berkeley, California and was a project manager at Surface Design in San Francisco.

Jennifer (Jenny) Jones is a landscape architect from Virginia with a background in the science and theory of the environment. Her multidisciplinary training and her experience as a science teacher shape her approach to landscape design, which considers integrating natural systems, encouragement of exploratory learning, and thinking at all scales of space and time.
Jenny started out her design career with OLIN, working on a range of projects, from one of the most iconic corporate campuses in Cupertino, CA, to hospitals and college campuses, to master planning for a historic home and garden in Rhode Island. She was a designer and project manager for a few campus landscape projects at UCLA, using native plants, planting on structure, and implementing low-impact design water strategies. While at Rios Clementi Hale, Jenny was a project manager and designer for the redesign of the Rose Garden at Descanso Gardens.
