Sara Brunelle

Sara is a landscape designer with an interest in the experiential quality of space and public realm. Her design approach is highly driven by context, people and communities, influenced by her background in community engagement and urban food production. She has designed and managed urban agriculture projects in South Africa, Mali, Ethiopia and Haiti.

Sara brings unique insight and great enthusiasm for play design to G2 Collaborative. Inspired by her work at the Child and Family Research Center where she examined the influence outdoor play environments have on children’s behaviour and social interactions, Sara has continued researching and publishing on the subject of play design. Her work focuses on challenging traditional ideas of play and developing guidelines and beautiful spaces that place the needs of children and teens first. 

She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts and Art History from Concordia University and a Master in Landscape Architecture from the University of British Columbia. 

Sara excels at striking up conversations with strangers on all means of public transport. On her free time, Sara likes to ride her bike really far.
