Finalist, 2021 A+Awards, Best in Typology - Landscape Architecture
Field Operations is a leading-edge landscape architecture and urban design practice based in New York City, with offices in San Francisco, Philadelphia, Shenzhen and London. Field Operations is renowned for strong contemporary design across a variety of project types and scales, from large urban districts, master plans and complex planning sites, to small well-crafted, detailed design projects. Regardless of scale, there is a special commitment to the design of a vibrant and dynamic public realm, informed by the ecology of both people and nature, rooted in place and context.
The ultimate aim is to bring beauty, health and vitality to the different kinds of environments where people live and interact. Given the current day urgency of creatively addressing challenges of changing climate, diminishing resources, environmental decline, social inequity and rapid urbanization, we focus upon design that thinks and acts big, that elegantly solves real problems, and shapes a more sustainable and resilient world for everybody.
Our project types range from entire sectors of cities, to urban development districts, large ecosystems, institutional campuses, urban waterfronts, large public parks, urban squares, public places, roof terraces and intimate gardens. This range of project types exemplifies our capacity to think creatively in terms of community, ecology, economics, development and programming—embraced through bold physical design, spatial experience and the poetics of place.
