I just wanted to share that my husband, Judd Langham, launched a new website and Facebook page for his landscape design, planning, and urban design firm, 2D Studio LLC.
2D Studio will maintain a separate blog located within their website as a way to journal about current project details and updates.
Here is more about Judd as described on the new website:
“Principal designer and founder of 2D Studio, Judd Langham, ASLA, LEED AP, believes in creating public spaces that are sensitive to and respectful of their surrounding context and that are responsive to the client’s programmatic needs. Judd is experienced in all facets of the design process from conceptual design, design development, construction documentation, and construction administration. He currently serves as an invited guest juror at Auburn University for graduate level design studio reviews, and he serves as a guest lecturer at both the University of Alabama at Birmingham and Auburn University. Additionally, he serves as an Adjunct Professor for the Master of Landscape Architecture Program at Auburn University. Having attained status as a LEED Accredited Professional, Judd takes pleasure in using his education, skills, and talents through his professional practice at 2D Studio LLC to make an ecologically sustainable difference one design at a time.
Born in Brewton, Alabama, a small rural city in south Alabama, his interest in landscape gardening and design came at an early age. At age 15, he started his own landscape maintenance company along with his father and brother. It flourished and grew to include a landscape installation and construction business. Through this early entrepreneurial endeavor he gained residential design and installation experience which resulted in Judd’s passion for landscape design and inspired him to study at Auburn University in Auburn, Alabama.
While at Auburn University, Judd earned a Bachelor of Science in Horticulture with an emphasis in landscape design. He also earned an undergraduate Business Minor. He remained at Auburn University to earn a Master of Landscape Architecture Degree, the terminal degree for this field, in 2007. Judd graduated magna cum laude and was also inducted into both Tau Sigma Delta and Sigma Lambda Alpha Honor Societies. While a student in the Landscape Architecture program, he served as a Research and Teaching Assistant to the Chair of the Master of Landscape Architecture Program, where he gained university teaching experience as well as experience in stormwater design. Additionally, with his graduate assistantship Judd designed and implemented rain gardens and other green infrastructure within the Auburn University Arboretum. Judd’s master’s level training provided a variety of hands-on experiences combined with diverse research and studies in horticulture and landscape architecture which influenced his passion and interest in creative and innovative stormwater, sustainable, and green design. While in graduate school, Judd served as the Treasurer for the American Society for Landscape Architects (ASLA) Auburn University Student Chapter for two years and was awarded the ASLA Merit Award for best thesis project and design.
Upon graduation, Judd joined The Olin Studio in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania as a landscape designer and planner. While at Olin, he worked on projects across the country ranging from a 400 acre brownfield mixed-use redevelopment in Napa, California, to a variety of projects in the mid-west and along the east coast. His project experience included sustainable campus planning and design for University of Wisconsin in Madison, Wisconsin and University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Additionally, Judd worked on the following projects while at Olin: urban planning and design for the Napa Pipe Redevelopment Project in Napa, California; master planning for the New York Botanical Garden, Bronx, New York; and garden, recreational and courtyard design for the Phipps Playground at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland.
After gaining invaluable experience at Olin, Judd returned to his home state to reside in Birmingham, Alabama, where he worked with a local mutli-disciplinary firm, Barge Waggoner Sumner & Cannon, for two years before becoming a founding partner at 2D Studio. Since the inception of 2D Studio, Judd has served as project manager for the complete restoration of Genetta Ditch in Montgomery, AL, an urban stream on the 303d impaired streams list. The restoration plan included 3,200 linear feet of restored stream channel and riparian zone, a constructed wetland, a variety of green infrastructure to remediate stormwater before it enters the stream, and a passive park that would help to educate and stimulate the public. True to his roots, Judd has continued his pursuit of landscape gardening and sustainable residential design while continuing to evolve in project experience and interest in the design profession.”
