Immersive Experiential Learning
Botanical Gardens, Zoos, Tutorial Gardens, Children’s Gardens, Conservatories, Master Planning, Etc.
The creation of space with a comprehensive and interactive approach—utilizing visual clues, subtle messages, sculptural reinforcements and architectural enhancements to influence the visitor’s natural experience. Accomplished through the combination of several different but uniquely related professional fields—landscape architecture, architecture, advertising and marketing, environmental graphic design, interpretation, and sculpture—we immerse and educate using a range of techniques in multiple layers.
DPA is experienced in developing and implementing designs and master plans for projects of all sizes. We have a reputation for producing visually exciting graphics, signage, site and landscape design that is clean, concise and easy to understand. Our collaborations combine the three dimensional landscape elements of plantings, paving and site amenities with strong graphic and interpretive elements to create an overall effect. We strive towards unique designs that incorporate the surroundings and/or area history to develop that special sense of place.
