About the company

ABB has undertaken a broad spectrum of commissions, including urban design, parks and recreational facilities, sports facilities, college campuses, housing, and commercial developments. We believe that landscape architecture is about connecting man-made designs with natural environments to create meaningful, beautiful and livable spaces. This is accomplished through superb conceptual design, where successful solutions are extrapolated from
the site, rather than the abstract.

By making public spaces more personal, by humanizing the urban landscape, and by respecting the environment, people
and architecture, ABB creates work that continually broadens
the boundaries of landscape architecture.
