Atlas Turns 5!

Atlas Lab turns 5! As we reflect on the last five years, we would like to extend our appreciation to our fantastic clients, partners, and community. We have worked on over 70 projects—ranging from small scale gardens and plazas to large active transportation projects and urban mixed-use sites. We have also taught, lectured, volunteered on non profit boards and worked on mission aligned pro-bono projects. All of this rewarding work is with the mission to design and build for conscious spaces. We look forward to continuing working with our design and community partners to share our mission throughout the California central valley and beyond!

An Expression of Hope; Kimberly Garza keynotes ASLA National Meeting

The field of landscape architecture, founded in patriarchy, white supremacy and colonization, must change. It is essential for the profession to identify, challenge, and reform the values, structures and behaviors that perpetuate systemic racism and sexism. Atlas Lab Principal, Kimberly Garza, together with Diana Fernandez, Andrew Sargeant, Jose de Jesus Leal and Kona Gray, deliver a powerful keynote on Wednesday, November 18, 2020, to share a collective acknowledgement of racism in the profession and examine what it is like to navigate the profession as people of color, culminating in a unified expression of hope for change and growth in the profession. Please join us at #reVISIONASLA2020 to gain insight on how to build a new value system.
