PEG office of landscape + architecture is an award-winning design and research office based in Philadelphia, PA. We engage a wide range of projects in terms of content, scale, and medium. Whether through competitions, writing or client-sponsored work, we explore the overlapping terrain between the disciplines of architecture and landscape architecture. Utilizing the techniques or conventions inherent in one discipline enables us to scrutinize the conventions of the other in order to imagine new formal and material arrangements. This does not, however, lead to the uniform application of technique. If we believed in manifestos, ours would be that scale matters.
