Please join us for an open studio at Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates. Michael and his associates are inspired by the power of landscape architecture to deliver beauty in its many forms: rational, lyrical, and exuberant. They believe that the most meaningful landscapes anticipate what they will mean to their many audiences and emerge from straightforward, elegant problem-solving techniques. The staff of 100 work collaboratively at a range of scales and landscape types, from the design of large public parks and university campuses, down to intimate gardens and private landscapes. Regardless of project size or location, MVVA’s built landscapes also exemplify outstanding environmental performance, financial resourcefulness, and technical innovation. The landscapes are social and programmatic centers for communities, institutions, and individuals—places that become part of daily life. As a firm they prioritize client vision, and are proud to have many long-time and repeat clients including Brooklyn Bridge Park Corporation, Princeton University, Harvard University, Wellesley College, The Menil Collection, and Waterfront Toronto. MVVA’s projects have received many of the highest professional honors for design excellence and for innovation, and was selected as Firm of the Year by the American Society of Landscape Architects in 2016.
