Legacy Design: The Philosophy Behind Design Workshop

Rebecca Zimmermann presents Design Workshop, a firm born in the pursuit of ideas. She explains that Design Workshop provides landscape architecture, urban design, and strategic services; creating projects for future generations around the world. Critical practice is used as a tool to analyze, define a dilemma, and a thesis for each design. The methodology applied in the tasks is legacy design, which integrates four elements: community, environment, economics, and art.

Design Workshop has worked on several projects around the world and continues creating value for each design.
