Shannon Gordon, ASLA, PLA

Community Designer


As a licensed landscape architect, Shannon has extensive experience in illustration, design and management of landscape architecture and planning projects throughout the world. But regardless of the location or client, his goal is to use that experience in tandem with his artistic ability to produce ever-improved solutions for the built environment.

Shannon began his career on the east coast as the “hot hand” for a legendary planning firm before bringing that same creative energy to BSB Design in 1988 (then called Bloodgood Architects and Planners). His ability to quickly visualize concepts and generate hand-drawn illustrations during meetings was a perfect fit for BSB Design’s in-person design consultation, still being used today.

That same hot hand and client-service approach brought Shannon back to BSB Design after a long career leading his own firm and heading up others, primarily in the Midwest. Now living in Kansas City, MO, he is excited to bring new energy to BSB Design’s efforts in the region. His goal is to provide builders and developers with design solutions that do more than just earn a profit. Shannon wants to create the kind of long-term relationships that will help his clients build a legacy.
