reconciled with reality
WE’RE NOT MAKING…
…decorative, pretty landscapes any longer, but rather performance landscapes designed to cope with the assertive forces of gravity, stormwater + human programming, without taming the character of the land. We call this re-wilding, which isn’t just a pastiche fix that tries to reestablish an unattainable pristine past. Instead, we are seeking a modern, future-focused acceptance of a new urban reality where full-bodied ecology is acknowledged + held high.
