We face tremendous challenges in the 21st century, but also have a remarkable opportunity to remake our world. The problems of environmental destruction, social inequity, and climate change are global in scope, but they will largely be addressed at the scale of the garden, the park, and the street. We can view our cities as an Urban Ecosystem, an ever-evolving synergy of culture and nature that sustains our way of life. Our work is focused on designing green infrastructure systems that change the way people think about the nature of cities. By blurring the line between what is “human” and what is “natural”, we can manage our landscapes in ways that increase the resilience, vibrance, and adaptability of our civilization. We believe the nature of cities can be a catalyst for improving and sustaining the quality of life and preparing our communities for the changing environment of the 21st century.
We employ the tools of science, art, and design, to make strategic interventions that regenerate our urban landscape. Our approach is based on collaboration, education, and partnership. We take care to understand the needs of our clients and project stakeholders while cultivating a thorough understanding of each landscape. Every landscape is unique, and we adapt our approach to ensure that every project is well-crafted, respectful of its context, and brings new life to a place.
