David Godshall

David Godshall is a landscape architect and co-founder of TERREMOTO, a California based design office that hopes to both elevate and undermine its profession. He enjoys mining the omnipotence of intentional inexactitude, flirts openly with illegibility, and strives, when appropriate, to do as little as possible.
