The creative, adaptive collaboration between designer and fabricator can result in timeless, visionary landscapes. This entire process, which we are calling “craft,” yields incredible skills, knowledge, and beautiful work. By intentionally cultivating these partnerships and interconnecting deep specializations, we can expand and elevate the practice of landscape architecture.
