Description, Philosophy, History

Description:
The office of Peter Walker and Partners was formed in 1983 for the practice of landscape architecture. The projects, executed worldwide, vary both in scale and program and include urban design and planning, corporate headquarters and university campuses, parks, plazas, and gardens. Exploring the relationships between art, culture, and context, Peter Walker and other members of the firm re-from the landscape--whether urban or natural--and challenge traditional concepts of design. The office's method of design moves from defining the program to forming the space and experimenting with materials; the tool employed are drawing, model-making, computer graphics, and full-size mock-ups. The decision process reflects the constant exchange occurring with clients, architects and consultants. A knowledge of history and tradition and a deep understanding of contemporary needs and patterns of living, combined with a quest for the appropriate and the particular, allow this firm to produce landscapes that are both timeless and unique.
