BIG LANDSCAPE is a group of landscape architects, urban designers and strategic thinkers integrated within our larger New York, London and Copenhagen-based design practice to reclaim the role and place of nature at both scene-making and city-making scales. BIG Landscape leverages landscape principles and urban design to create seamless links between buildings and the surrounding city—spanning across the traditional boundaries of indoor and outdoor, public and private, building and landscape to unify neighborhoods and establish stronger communities.
Our urban landscapes and streetscapes aim to create more resilient, connected and equitable cities. To implement this vision, we engage with stakeholders to tailor resiliency, landscape designs and community engagement to each location to create social urban spaces.
Our projects include The Big U, a 10-mile landscape on the New York City waterfront that simultaneously transforms a public park while implementing resiliency measures that safeguard the region from future floods; and Superkilen, a public space in Copenhagen that creates a sense of place and gathering for an entire neighborhood. The project is the winner of the Aga Khan Award for Public Space
