Dept. (Department, LLC) is a landscape architecture and urban design studio. We approach each project by thinking critically about social and ecological systems to provide creative, pragmatic, and adaptive design responses.
Creative and Pragmatic
We strive to balance on-the-ground realities with ambitious visions for the future. We are inventive and critical while also having a keen understanding of execution and implementation.
Social and Ecological
We believe that the best design is informed by its social and ecological context. We are committed to engaging and serving communities through thoughtful planning processes; and we strive to create ecologically sensitive designs that are adaptive and responsive.
