Sasaki Welcomes New York-based Design Firm DLANDstudio into its Practice

Sasaki recently announced that DLANDstudio, located in Brooklyn, New York, is joining the company and will integrate into Sasaki’s interdisciplinary design practice. 

This partnership brings together two leading design firms to collectively tackle 21st century design challenges centered around climate adaptation, biodiversity loss, environmental justice, and social equity. This partnership also establishes a new location for Sasaki in New York that will serve local, national, and international clients.

“As we continue to grow our practice and build the next generation of design leaders, integrating DLANDstudio with Sasaki will allow us to deepen our bench of talented designers, thought leaders, and builders to help solve the complex social, ecological, and climatic challenges of the 21st century,”

“With this partnership, Sasaki will enhance our commitment to resiliency and environmental justice, increase our geographical impact, and continue the evolution of Sasaki’s influential legacy.”

As a result of this partnership, Sasaki will be able to pursue new opportunities across all market sectors and continue to design industry-leading projects globally. With DLANDstudio’s team integrated into Sasaki, the firm will provide Better Design, Together.  

“Environmental justice was, and remains, an important driver of the work that we do every day. We recognized that, to realize our design vision, we needed a deeper team with a global track record of compelling and beautiful built work. Upon entering into conversations with Sasaki, we knew that we had found the right partner to help us deliver the goals that we have been working toward for the past 18 years. We are thrilled to join Sasaki and embark upon this new journey together.”
