Jerry Van Eyck ING, RLA, ASLA
!melk’s founding principal Jerry van Eyck possesses an unusual breadth and depth of skills that he applies to every project under his purview. Trained as a landscape architect and industrial designer, he approaches each commission balancing both the macro-scale – how open and public space fit into the larger context of a city’s fabric and the urban experience, with the micro – materiality, ornamentation, and pattern as expressed through custom furniture, lighting, paving, and other details that provide each project its own singular identity. Many of Jerry’s projects focus on innovative solutions for urban revitalization in complex and often historic settings. He has garnered a reputation as a specialist in the design of complex urban interventions, including waterfronts, which act as catalysts for economic development.
Jerry is a globally respected lecturer, and serves as a visiting critic at design institutions, which include, Harvard University’s GSD, The Yale School of Architecture, Columbia University’s GSAPP, and the Illinois Institute of Technology. Currently, Jerry serves as Adjunct Professor of Landscape Architecture at the University of Pennsylvania; he is a member of the Board of Governors of the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture, and he is listed on the United States General Services Administration’s Nation Register of Peer Professionals.
