SWA/BALSLEY and WEISS/MANFREDI
SWA/Balsley is a leading landscape architecture, planning, and urban design firm. They create inspired and resilient outdoor spaces that enhance communities and enrich people’s lives. Their designers hail from two internationally renowned firms known for a wide range of innovative, award-winning projects: from large-scale master plans to small urban spaces; from urban waterfronts and major parks to institutional, residential, and corporate landscapes. The places they create reflect their deep commitment to design excellence, and their belief that landscape architecture plays an instrumental role in forging a culture that connects people with place and with each other.
Weiss/Manfredi Architecture/Landscape/Urbanism is at the forefront of architectural design practices that are redefining the relationship between landscape, architecture, infrastructure, and art. The firm’s projects are noted for clarity of vision, bold and iconic forms, and material innovation. Named one of North America’s “Emerging Voices” by the Architectural League of New York, Weiss/Manfredi Architecture/Landscape/Urbanism’s distinct vision was recently recognized with Cooper Hewitt’s prestigious National Design Award for Architecture. Additional honors include the Tau Sigma Delta Gold Medal, the New York AIA Gold Medal, and the Award in Architecture from the American Academy of Arts and Letters.
