Represented by Catherine Mosbach, mosbach paysagistes has extensive experience with large-scale projects in urban landscapes with high heritage and environmental value. The skills of the studio are developed at different scales and landscape briefs in order to articulate natural resources with urban & cultural ones. The public facilities projects develop an integrated scenography between the landscape settlements & a didactic approach accessible to the public. Among the most representative are the Botanical Garden of Bordeaux, the Archaeological Park of Solutré or Louvre Lens Museum Park and more recently Phase Shifts Park in Taichung.
