ATLAS Lab Inc. is an award-winning design studio—marrying the disciplines of landscape architecture and urban design to build healthy communities through public art and community engagement.
Landscape Architectural Consulting
We consult for a range of clients including landscape architects, architects, engineers and public and private developers to develop vision plans and innovative design solutions for urban landscapes, including parks, plazas, transportation corridors, waterfronts, and private and public developments.
Community Engagement Consulting
We work with allied design professionals, developers and public/private institutions to develop thoughtful design strategies that ensure full public participation, including but not limited to: design workshops, on‐site tactical interventions, and web‐based platforms. We coordinate with local organizations that serve the community and facilitate dialogue between communities, stakeholders, public and private institutions to develop a unified vision.
With expertise in 2D and 3D visual graphics and research, we provide clients a range of visualization support including master plans, design guidelines, 3D renderings and exhibits.
Installations + Public Art
We employ avant-garde tactical methods for transitory projects and unique approaches to interim installations that activate underperforming and overlooked public spaces within the built environment.
We bring vibrant and authentic design solutions for cities through community collaborations that are historically, culturally and ecologically responsive.
Founded in 2011, ATLAS Lab began as a nimble design lab that explored creative approaches to enhancing public life. The Lab earned numerous design awards and publications—project highlights include the Market Street Prototyping Festival and the winning proposal for the Sacramento Capitol Mall design competition. Today, ATLAS Lab Inc. has matured into a full-service practice, offering clients a range of inventive design solutions, including but not limited to: landscape architecture consulting, visualization support, public art design and community engagement services.
ATLAS Lab primarily works within the public realm, identifying underperforming sites in the urban environment to increase ecological productivity, safety, and social interactions. Whether a small-scale art installation or large-scale master plan, ATLAS Lab’s design solutions are guided by a rigorous research process to develop strategies that are historically, culturally and ecologically responsive. While the Lab has developed proposals for large urban contexts, it is rooted in the idea that small interventions can make a big impact. With experience collaborating and managing complex design teams, working on private and public developments, and developing vision plans at the city and pedestrian scale, we bring expertise enhancing the human experience.
