Founded by architect, Sheldon Smith in 1853, our "born on" date might suggest that we're a traditional design and engineering firm, but we left old-fashioned mindsets at the curb decades ago. Today, SmithGroup is an award-winning, integrated multidisciplinary organization that employs research, data, advanced technologies, and design thinking to help clients solve their greatest challenges across these markets: Cultural, Healthcare, Higher Education, Government, Mixed-Use, Parks & Open Spaces, Science & Technology, Urban Environments, Waterfront, and Workplace.
Working across a network of 20 offices internationally, our team of 1,400 experts includes 94 landscape architects and 43 civil and coastal engineers. We are committed to excellence in strategy, design, and delivery-giving rise to new and innovative processes and methodologies that are redefining the way we work as teams.
The more complicated the project, the more apparent the skills of SmithGroup's landscape architects. Deftly resolving the multiple complexities of a project is where we shine, while creating places that add value to both human and natural communities. With a focus on our client's goals, each design is unique, respecting the natural and cultural context and expressing the program in a fresh, responsive, and inspired way that results
in meaningful places.
