Lively minds making a liveable world
We are a pioneering international landscape architecture practice. Our work reconnects people with nature in insightful, delightful and distinctive ways whilst addressing the global challenges of urbanisation, the climate crisis and biodiversity extinction.
Climate and Biodiversity Emergency
Grant Associates recognises the climate and biodiversity emergency as the defining challenge of our times. These two distinct issues, with considerable overlap, will be urgently addressed in all that we do. As landscape architects we will use our skills towards delivering a climate positive future and to protect and enhance biodiversity and the wonder of the natural world.
Grant Associates was one of the founding signatories of UK Landscape Architects Declare. Meeting the needs of our society without breaching the earth’s ecological boundaries will demand a paradigm shift in how we commission, plan and design landscapes, cities, infrastructures and buildings.
