She is known for leading complex, creative, and collaborative work processes that advance broad environmental and social prerogatives.
Kate was named a 2012 United States Artist Fellow, an Elle Magazine “Planet Fixer,” and shared Scape’s design methodologies at the International TEDWomen Conference in 2010.
