Our studio is invested in exploring diverse and emergent landscape typologies which serve both as aesthetic experiences in the cityscape and also function as integral components of a radical green urban infrastructure.
Future Green team visits Glover Perennials
The FGS design team took a field trip to Glover Perennials, a wholesale grower on Long Island, as part of the firm’s technical review day. As a landscape architecture and urban ecology practice, we believe it is imperative to study, investigate and push boundaries through detailed understanding of plants. The day included interaction and a tour of the nursery with owner, Jim Glover, who graciously shared his expansive reservoir of botanical knowledge- giving insights into trends and changing cultures of planting in addition to explanations on ecological relevance of species. Such visits are critical to experimenting and expanding our botanical knowledge base, as well as in bridging the gap between the design, operation and performance of a landscape.
