At WLA we are fortunate to have many of the landscape architecture firms and product suppliers join us as supporters. Today we are happy to announce that De Paauw architecture has joined WLA as a Partner. We look forward to their support and featuring their projects during 2022 and beyond. We would like to introduce De Paauw architecture.

De Paauw architecture works lies in the intersection between urban planning, landscape architecture and the built environment. Its projects aim to mitigate the effects of climate change as well as provide resilient responses to its causes. With a clear environmentalist perspective, from landscape architecture and urban regeneration it explores the rebalancing between nature and anthropization so that cities can reach the level of habitability and health.
