Founded more than 40 years ago, Andropogon is a landscape architecture and ecological design firm committed to the principle of “designing with nature,” while creating beautiful and evocative landscapes inspired by the careful observation of natural processes that are informed by the best environmental science. The elegance and economy of natural form and process continue to be the benchmark by which we measure the success of our work—from the smallest construction detail to the multi-layered patterns of regional sites.
From the beginning, Andropogon has pushed the definition of how we define truly sustainable sites. We believe that ecologically responsible design must go beyond just minimizing our impact on the local and global environment. Instead, we see every project as an opportunity to restore the integrity of a site and to make it fundamentally regenerative for the larger community in the long term.
As a certified minority business enterprise (MBE), Andropogon is committed to diversity and inclusion in the workplace. Our multi-cultural staff is dedicated to the successful maturing of each project, from initial concept designs to construction review and long-term landscape management. Our body of national and international work includes early examples of innovative green strategies that have withstood the test of time as well as a broad range of landscape, site planning, environmental projects, ecological restoration, and innovative stormwater management techniques.
