Academic Institutions

"I would argue that the firm's greatest contribution is the education that it has done for clients, college students, and many members of the green building movement."


Education is at the core of CDF's philosophy, and we have designed landscapes for all kinds of educational venues, from middle schools to environmental centers to community colleges and universities. For all our academic projects, we delve deeply into the ecology of the site, listen carefully to the particular needs of those who will visit it, and discover the interpretive opportunities that exist there. We bring ecology to the forefront, turning wetlands, rain gardens, green roofs, and other green elements into educational highlights.
