Municipal Planning & Urban Design

The intensity of rapid decentralized urbanization, as well as a lack of understanding of landscape ecology, have allowed natural systems in the US to be ignored as resources for water, sustainable energy generation, clean air, diversified transportation options, and recreation. Offshoots public projects are varied in scale and client-type, but have a consistent thread of landscape system integration in all designed projects.
