Jason kentner, rla
In 2012 Jason Kentner founded IMPLEMENT studio as a parallel to his academic teaching and design research. As the firm's Design Principal, Jason has shaped a practice that is characterized by diverse project types that engage landscape at a range of scales from regional trails and community parks to small urban sites. That breadth of expertise has allowed IMPLEMENT to collaborate with numerous community non-profits, municipal agencies, institutional administrations, development partnerships and individual clients.
Originally from Northeast Ohio, Jason's attention to landscape is heavily influenced by the familiar rural and industrial landscapes that characterize so much of the Central Ohio, Great Lakes and Rust Belt region. Within this context, landscape has the potential to define urban character, recall cultural history, activate ecological process, and provide infrastructural function.
