Urban Design Open House Series: Landscape Architecture Bureau

Join the AIA|DC Urban Design Committee for our third annual series of open houses at leading architectural and urban design offices in DC. They will be showcasing projects currently in planning, design, or construction phases.

Attendees will gain awareness of the changes that are taking place in the city through design practices. This is an opportunity for the architectural community to see the current and future projects that can potentially transform the District, region, the nation, and the world.

Landscape Architecture Bureau [LAB] creates memorable landscapes and urban designs that are practical, sustainable and of lasting beauty. Our firm specializes in landscape architecture in highly urbanized contexts, while providing expertise in solving design problems in the public realm. The firm has gained a reputation for thoroughly exploring the possibilities of each project no matter its size, scope, or resources, resulting in spaces that satisfy their users and engage the senses.
