The PLOT...

The multiple meanings of the word “plot” itself are at the heart of our design philosophy. These meanings are always in play, always aimed at producing meaningful landscapes and always critically responsive and contextually specific to place and circumstance. 

1. PLOT as crafting a piece of ground 

2. PLOT as the graphic representation of the ground or landscape 

3. PLOT as the narrative; revealing the story of the place through landscape 

4. PLOT as an agenda; an invention of new ecologies 

 

The MISSION...

PLOT combines fresh vision and ideas with seasoned expertise and innovative technologies to produce landscapes of the highest quality. 

PLOT believes the most successful landscape projects begin with a collaborative approach. The first level of collaboration is the relationship between designer and client. 

PLOT provides solutions that are simple, achievable, and flexible; ecologically and culturally responsible works of lasting distinction.
