Boston – Sasaki announced the promotion of Joshua Brooks, AICP, ASLA, PLA; Anna Cawrse, ASLA, PLA; and Andrew Gutterman, ASLA, PLA; to principal, and Tamar Warburg, AIA, LEED AP BD+C to associate principal.

Brooks is a designer, planner, and co-director of Sasaki’s Denver office. His work revolves around the intersection of people and infrastructure, where he works to promote human-centric urbanism through design that has ecological integrity and lasting social significance.

Anna Cawrse

Cawrse is a landscape architect and co-director of Sasaki’s Denver office. She is responsible for leading significant public realm projects throughout North America with a specific focus on the Intermountain West.

Gutterman brings nearly two decades of professional experience as a landscape architect and his understanding of natural systems to inform all aspects of the planning and design process. His experience spans the full spectrum of project types, with a particular emphasis on creating high quality landscapes for academic and institutional clients.

Andrew Gutterman

Warburg is director of sustainability and resilience, and works with Sasaki teams to develop sustainability and resilience goals appropriate for each project and access critical resources to reach those goals. She works across all Sasaki disciplines, on projects as varied as net-zero campus buildings, resilience and sustainability strategies for cities and corporate clients, and minimizing carbon emissions from buildings and landscape projects.

Tamar Warburg

“A hallmark of Sasaki’s success over the years has been welcoming new voices to the firm’s leadership, especially those that offer fresh perspectives and lead us towards innovative opportunities,” said James Miner, CEO of Sasaki. “Bringing new voices to the table is what allows a legacy firm like ours to continue to evolve and take on the most pressing challenges of today. Individually, Josh, Anna, Andrew, and Tamar bring tremendous leadership and depth of experience to their clients and teams. And together, through their commitment to continuous learning and collaboration, they will advance Sasaki’s design culture, which is where the real magic happens.”

These promotions come as Sasaki continues to grow, having recently announced its partnership with DLANDstudio and the opening of the firm’s first New York office.

Brooks’ expertise includes district-scale master planning and design, urban development, infrastructural systems, and streets and public space.

With expertise that spans urban corridors and districts, public plazas, and parks and open space, Cawrse has been recognized for her ability to transition master planning of the public realm into realized space. Her work includes contributing to her team’s Climate.Park.Change. project, part of a climate change toolkit to be used by various parks departments across the country.

Gutterman’s background in ecology has helped foster a deep appreciation for the beauty and complexity of the natural world and a strong belief that these qualities can be brought to the built environment in meaningful ways, according to representatives of the firm.

Warburg directs Sasaki’s Sustainable Leaders, training the individuals embedded in each project team responsible for project sustainability metrics and goals.
