What is a landscape architect?


Landscape architects are creators of exceptional landscapes. They work for residential, public, and institutional spaces. Their creativity is expressed in the planning and designing of outdoor spaces to make them harmonious, aesthetic, and respectful of nature.


They are multidisciplinary artists with in-depth knowledge of the arts and sciences. They shape the world around us with their technical and horticultural expertise.


What is the role of a landscape architect?


The role of a landscape architect is to conceive, design and implement a landscape design that respects the history of the site and the local context. To do this, they apply professional skills in landscape aesthetics and environmental design.


They conduct an in-depth site analysis to understand its resources and physical characteristics. They design a project sketch, considering the customer's needs, aesthetics, and environmental and natural constraints.
