Our name refers to the desert superbloom, and the latent potential of design to create spectacular future conditions.

We are an innovative landscape architecture and planning collaborative committed to dynamic design, environmental stewardship and deep research. We work with the elements and systems of landscape to cultivate transformative future conditions. Inspired by the dynamic landscape of the American West, our design practice lays the groundwork for flourishing ecologies and resilient communities.

 

Superbloom was founded on a commitment to crafting meaningful connections between people and the land through the practice of transformative design. We believe in the power of art and design to translate the experience and knowledge of place, and to connect the past with our shared future.

We relish the journey of design  – the people, the plants, the animals, the culture and ecology that influence it – and seek to unearth hidden narratives and to tell meaningful stories. We celebrate profound histories, diverse ecologies and the opportunity to synthesize these in new forms of public space.

Research, getting our hands dirty, art-making and creative storytelling lie at the heart of our work.  We design landscapes with an eye toward enduring beauty, but we understand that the influences of time, seasonality, and culture make them fluid and dynamic.

Methods x Process

We work closely with individuals and communities to develop authentic approaches for each project, and designs that can grow from concept to implementation. Our methods are based in the creation of trust-bound relationships, forging connections, rigorous research, engagement and field work. We explore ideas through various forms, from built projects to publications, design research and site specific installations.

CONNECT

We design to connect communities and inspire agency. Our process is immersed in a range of perspectives, histories, futures and possibilities.

CREATE

Designing from the roots to the tip – soil to sky, we synthesize environmental and cultural narratives into visionary designs.

COLLECT

Site matters and we engage in active field work, taking measure and testing new methods that employ scalar thinking.

CRAFT

With an eye for the details and the process of creation, we work with the material elements of landscape, live matter, life cycle and labor.

CULTIVATE

Cross-disciplinary research that pushes boundaries and inspires transformational shifts in placemaking and stewardship.

CELEBRATE

Dedicated to a culture that supports transformation, fostering community, health and spectacular future natures.
