Land Design Studio
As Principal and founder of Land Design Studio, Mr. Bellomy is responsible for securing and implementing a diverse range of projects. His experience in Planning and Design on a wide variety of public, private, local, regional and international commissions contributes to the depth of Gary’s professional background.
Formerly a senior associate with SLA Studio Land in Houston, Texas and the director of design for EDAW’s southeast regional office, Mr. Bellomy was involved in a number of “cutting edge” commissions both in the United States and abroad. As the director of landscape architecture for a large multi-disciplinary firm in Oklahoma and later a partner in one of the nation’s largest landscape architectural firms, his responsibilities and project experience have been widely varied. Prior to joining EDAW, he was director of Myrick, Newman & Dahlberg’s Austin, Texas office at a time when both Austin and the nation experienced unprecedented economic growth, speculation and environmental pressure. Before joining Myrick, Newman & Dahlberg, Gary’s years with HTB Architects proved highly educational in the areas of professional practice, project management, design documentation and construction administration. Gary’s competence, leadership and cooperative attitude have proven to be an attribute to many design teams. His respect for and skillful interaction with clients and fellow consultants has contributed significantly to the successful implementation of countless professional commissions.
During his career Gary has been recognized by the following honors, awards and appointments: A merit award for Agora Park; Oklahoma Chapter ASLA; First Gubernatorial Appointee to the Oklahoma State Board of Landscape Architects; Award for Outstanding Contribution to the Profession, Oklahoma Chapter ASLA; Award for Outstanding Service as Chapter President, Oklahoma Chapter ASLA; Appointed to City of Dallas Environmental Quality Committee; Selected for American Institute of Architects/RUDAT, Waterloo, Iowa; Past Chairman of Austin Section of the American Society of Landscape Architects. He currently sits on the Executive Committee and serves as the chair of the Urban Plan Committee for the Austin District Council of the Urban Land Institute. Urban Plan is a ULI program which seeks to educate local high school and college students about the processes which shape our communities. In the last decade Gary has emerged as one of Austin’s Community Advocates for compact neighborhood development in lieu of the continuation of suburban sprawl. This vital issue faces not only Austin, but most of growing suburban areas. Gary recently appeared on KLRU’s Austin at Issue in support of this movement. Mr. Bellomy is an ardent local supporter of the smart growth movement in Austin and continues to seek opportunities, which contribute to a more diverse, compact, mixed-use pattern of development.
