Weekly Architecture Fix, Vol. 6 | Landscape Architecture

We’re still here for you, even while social distancing

Happy Spring, everyone!

Our beautiful Colorado spring weather this week sees many of us taking advantage of our outdoor spaces as much as possible. And no doubt this week’s feature on Landscape Architecture will have you appreciating them even more. We’re relishing this chance to revisit some of the greats like Olmsted and Noguchi, as well as others. Here’s to more of this glorious weather and a return to experiencing our beloved outdoor spaces on a regular basis very soon!

Warm regards,
DAF Team
