"You can be ecological and you can also make art. There's no real one or the other. "
David R. Lamb, ASLA Landscape Architecture
Residential Landscape Architecture, Site Planning, Environmental Consultant, Environmental remediation
David R. Lamb, ASLA has been practicing Landscape Architecture for over 30 years with commissions in foreign countries as well as on the Eastern Seaboard of the United States.
Grounded in the Beaux Art tradition of environmental design, the firm infuses a sense of architectural order in the design process while respecting the ecological, cultural and environmental context that the project is in.
The Beaux Art School of Design has always been a means of satisfying the need for spaces to honour the human inhabitants by way of an orderly logical landscape design.
However, as we become increasingly aware of how human habitation has degraded the natural environment [through the degradation of habitats and ecosystems], it becomes increasingly important to always ensure that the final design of a new landscape honours not only the human inhabitants but also the existing wildlife community that was there before we, as a species, arrived.
