History of Landscape Architecture
The term ‘Landscape Architecture’ was originated in “The Landscape Architecture of the Great Painters of Italy“, a book written by Gilbert Laing Meason. It is both unique and impressive, that over a century later the term remains highly relevant throughout the profession and the world.
In the 19th century, Frederick Olmstead came to be known as the “Father of American Landscape Architecture.” He is most famous for designing New York’s Central Park grounds and his work on the U.S Capitol in Washington, D.C.
WGI’s Landscape Architects strive to provide design solutions that are sustainable, maintainable, support our belief in being a steward of the environment and speak to the unique characteristics of each site.
