Our Mission

Through integrative teaching, research, creative work, and outreach, we design and plan sustainable communities and regions. We seek integrative, regenerative, community-based, beautiful solutions to serve the ecological, economic and social needs of human as well as natural systems. Our distinctive academic department, which combines landscape architecture and regional planning, enables us to connect spatial and social forms across multiple scales, from the site to the city to the region, and from design to plan to program and policy implementation.
