who we are

Office of Living Things is a landscape research and design collective that uses the tools of landscape architecture to cultivate a culture of attention to the agencies, propensities, and complexities of living things. Through a methodology that intentionally muddies our own collective practices with the assemblages we find in our projects, we translate, draw, re-tell and re-invent stories at the intersections of nature and culture. Our research, fieldwork, and design emphasize direct engagement with site and community through a practice of radical listening--being outside, flexible, mobile, and open.

This research project investigated the potential of logics grounded in regenerative agriculture to define new patterns of urbanization. It was a portion of a larger project focused on Chinese new cities conducted by the Office for Urbanization at the Harvard Graduate School of Design. Our contribution focused on the design of soil through agricultural practices to create new urban structures.

Research funded through the Harvard Graduate School of Design.
