                 f i r m profile




                 Commitment to elegant design, environmental
                 stewardship, and superior collaborative service has
                 long characterized the work of Towers|Golde. Each
                 project, each client or user, and each site inspires us
                 to generate unique and innovative solutions that
                 produce dynamic places of beauty and sustainability,
                 enduring quality, and humanity.


                 In 1997 the American Society of Landscape Architects
                 honored the firm with its most prestigious Award
                 of Excellence, national recognition of the firm’s long
                 history of achievement in landscape architectural
                 design. We have also received more than 50 state,
                 national, and international awards for completed
                 projects. Towers|Golde’s consistent pursuit of design
                 integrity, professionalism, and continuity of service
                 continues to elicit exciting and challenging projects.


                 As a mid-sized firm of landscape architects, T|G is
                 ideally suited to serve our clients with responsive,
                 personal attention. For over forty years we have
                 collaborated with many of the country’s outstanding
                 architects and planners. We routinely assemble
                 project teams to meet the needs of a broad range
                 of project scales. At least one partner is intimately
                 involved in each project, drawing on the unusual
                 breadth of expertise, creativity and passion of the
                 design talent within the studio.

                 Towers|Golde does not have a ‘style’. Our designs
                 are specific to the client, the site, and the larger
                 physical and cultural context, whether that is
                 ecological, architectural, historical or institutional. By
                 carefully interweaving environmental character and
                 architectural aesthetic, we unite site and structure
                 with apparent effortlessness to create memorable
                 spaces of distinctive character that enrich the daily
                 lives of individuals and their communities.


                 Our practice is founded on skillful analysis of
                 landscape conditions, sensitivity to architectural
                 mission and issues of scale, commitment to the
                 principles of sustainable design, and unusual respect
                 for client concerns. We are dedicated to an inclusive,
                 collaborative design process that serves art and
                 stewardship as well as budget and function.


                 In the belief that variety fosters creativity, the firm
                 maintains a portfolio that is diverse in project size,
                 type and geographic distribution. This approach
                 assures that we bring a fresh eye for scale, detail and
                 landscape opportunity to each commission. It has also
                 allowed us to develop an unusual depth of experience
                 in a significant number of specialties. Our projects
                 have ranged from university campus plans to historic
                 garden restorations, from corporate headquarters
                 to large urban developments, and from private
                 residences to a new city in South Korea.
