What is Landscape Architecture?
People, places, and stewardship of the land are the foundations of the landscape architecture profession.
Landscape architects shape the environment and, in doing so, create an immense impact in our lives, improving the richness and beauty of our surroundings.
who we are
Landscape Architects are trained professionals who approach diverse landscape projects with artistic flair and technical knowledge. They are holistic in their approach, working with both poles of human culture – the practical and analytical as well as the artistic and intuitive.
Aside from using the aesthetic elements of design, landscape architects are knowledgeable in a gamut of fields of study, such as architecture, urban planning, engineering and construction, horticulture, the natural sciences like geology and ecology, research methods as well as the social sciences including economics and psychology – all of which they combine to create well thought-out spaces. The intensifying global attention to sustainability and environmental conservation means that landscape architects' skills are increasingly in demand here and all over the world.
what we do
Landscape architects work on all types of outdoor spaces, ranging from small residential gardens, to public parks and streetscapes, to planning of industrial sites and urban cityscapes. Different from gardeners skilled in crafting pockets of green, landscape architects are capable of executing more complex projects that transform, enhance and conserve our natural and built environment, creating inspiring places in which to live, work and relax.
Mindful of today’s social, cultural, and environmental challenges, the Filipino landscape architect is committed to improve the quality of life of his or her client and country.
