As we’ve posted previously we are always looking at past works of architecture and landscape architecture to both learn and gain inspiration from.  Here is a small sampling of projects that we love in geometry, elevations, shadow & lighting… amongst other features.  They’re just lovely.  Hope you enjoy!

There are so many great landscape architects/architects that inspire us that these posts barely scratch the surface.  Still, at the same time, it’s always great to take another look at these works.


Hi I’m Burle the two pictures above are of me.  I’m named after Roberto Burle Marx.  I’m really loud and have an irrational fear of hats and stairs.  My favorite things to eat are carrots.  Or maybe it’s just the noise I like.  They’re crunchy.  Anytime someone in the office is eating carrots for lunch I look deep into their eyes willing them to give me one.  They cave every time.  I’m very powerful.
 I’m Kiley, named after Dan Kiley.  I like carrots too, but not as much as Burle.  I’m also afraid of people wearing hats… but not as afraid as Burle.  What I’m really about is playing with wet slimy balls.  A lot of times the humans in the office sit and stare at this big rectangular screen… when they’ve been doing this for a while I take it upon myself to invite them to play with my slimy ball.  I do this by maneuvering my head between their arm and leg always being sure to slime them with my nose to get their attention.  They love it, they simply must.I’m Simon.  I don’t know who I’m named after I should really ask mom.  I’m not afraid of anyone, not even hats and I don’t think I ever have been… but I should probably ask mom about that too.  I love to lean.  I’ll lean on just about anyone.  Sometimes I like to lean my head against people, sometimes my torso, sometimes my bum.  Whatever, if there’s anywhere to lean I’ll be there. Leaning.
