Stoss Landscape Urbanism

Boston-based Stoss Landscape Urbanism practices at the juncture of landscape architecture, urban design, and planning. Founded in 2000 by Principal Chris Reed, Stoss has gained prominence as an innovative, experimental new voice in the field. Stoss’s work moves beyond landscape improvements to address critical issues of infrastructure and function, ecology and sustainability, and social and civic context. The firm’s projects range from playgrounds and parks to infrastructure and urban strategies, and include the CityDeck in Green Bay, WI, and Laaglandpark in Antwerp, Belgium. Stoss received the Topos Landscape Award in 2010.
