Among other projects, Jordan is currently working as part of a design team on Central Park in Madison, Wisconsin, which is located on a capped brown-field. She is "approaching the site as a laboratory that integrates nature and art with utility and community activities. She will help create the park's green infrastructure through the design of storm-water sculptures, LED light-works, energy-harnessing artworks, sculptural gathering places, and/or pathways." She is also working on a proposal for a green open space in Seattle. She is working with issues of creating community spaces and environmental artworks, xeri-scaping landscapes, harvesting grey water/storm-water, managing water issues, etc.

Singer completed the highly visible 5000 s.f. interior garden at Concourse C of Denver Airport. He also collaborated with an architect and landscape architect on the design of interior and exterior gardens at the Alterra Institute for Environmental Research, where the gardens clean the building's grey water (through an outdoor wetland and pool with water-filtering plant materials) and air, and provide climate control without air-conditioning.
Singer creates environmental works using natural materials. He has been involved in design teams working with issues of tidal wetlands, watershed management, grey water and storm water recycling, xeri-scaping, wildlife habitats, and urban green spaces.
