Design Workshop®, a Denver-based landscape architecture firm, has been creating "sustainable places of timeless beauty" since 1969. The firm's numerous awards reflects its successful innovations in land planning and design. To mark its 40th anniversary in 2010, Design Workshop partnered with Utah State University to create the Design Workshop Landscape Architecture Archive which includes this digital collection as well as a physical archive housed in Merrill-Cazier Library's Special Collections and Archives. Utah State University will use materials from the archives to support its Landscape Architecture and Environmental Planning curriculum, advancing the education of future generations of landscape architects. This archival collection offers students a unique and comprehensive look at how designers from one leading design firm succeed at their trade.
This innovative and evolving archive and digital collection created by Design Workshop and Utah State University begins with four projects: Kananaskis (Calgary, Alberta, Canada), High Desert (Albuquerque, New Mexico), Summerlin (Las Vegas, Nevada), and Starwood Ranch (Aspen, Colorado).
