Stuart Fulbright has designed and built landscapes from Arkansas to Florida, Mexico and the Virgin Islands. Encompassing both private and public spaces, his contemporary work fuses sustainable landscape and architectural design, art, and playfulness into livable outdoor spaces. Fulbright was born in the Ozarks and raised in California. After working in Saudi Arabia and traveling throughout the Middle East and Europe, he returned to Fayetteville, Arkansas to earn his degree in landscape architecture from the nationally-recognized Fay Jones School of Architecture. Fulbright has worked for Edward Durell Stone Jr., a large international landscape architecture firm as well as smaller practices based in Florida and the British Virgin Islands. In 2003, he established his practice in Fayetteville. Fulbright brings a multi-faceted, global sophistication to his work, but his rich palette of native plants and local materials and collaboration with local artists and designers root his designs with a strong sense of place.
Fulbright has worked extensively with Northwest Arkansas’ leading architects, including Marlon Blackwell, Modus Studio, Albert and Lisa Skiles and Tim Cooper. His projects and collaborations have been published in Landscape Architecture, Garden Design, Southern Living, Architectural Record and Sculpture magazines.
When he’s not gardening, drawing or building, Fulbright can be found on the Buffalo River studying the way water flows across his toes.
