Andrea Cochran Landscape Architecture

Established in 1998, San Francisco–based Andrea Cochran Landscape Architecture is known for seamlessly integrating landscape, art, and architecture. The firm’s work is distinguished by its careful attention to site, climate, and the choreography of experience. With a controlled palette of materials, Andrea Cochran creates permeable edges that blur the lines between the natural and built environments. Spare geometry applied to vibrant plant life results in sharp compositional order, yielding landscapes that convey a heightened sense of texture, light, and movement. A monograph of Cochran’s work, Andrea Cochran: Landscapes, was published in 2009.
