Olin Partnership (Olin), Philadelphia, PA – Landscape Architecture (SBE) Olin Partnership has worked with MGA and DPZ on Spring Hill Lake and is also currently working with MGA on the Temple University/Fox School of Business. In addition, MGA has worked with one of Olin’s former Associate Principals on several projects including MGA’s Nova- Care Complex for the Philadelphia Eagles NFL Team and several major homes. Olin also designed the security landscape around the Washing- ton Monument, for which MGA designed the architectural scaffolding and interior renovation. Olin is a Philadelphia firm known nationally for its landscape design. For Olin, landscape architecture is a celebration of place. Successful design recognizes the natural and social processes that shape a place. Olin has created, in a broad range of contexts, land- scapes that succeed both as social spaces and as environmental sys- tems. By synthesizing the best of art and science, it seeks to transform natural and man-made elements into expressions of social purpose, rec- onciling the character of the place with its contemporary adaptations. The firm takes a long-term view of design, believing that strong, clear schemes supported by innovative detailing and fine, lasting materials are essential in melding social needs and physical resources. Design that provides functional accommodation, symbolic meaning, and aesthetic richness can make timeless human environments. Olin has established an international reputation for excellence in landscape architecture. The diverse experience of the firm encompasses environmental analy- sis, master and site planning, and landscape design, documentation, and construction administration for a broad range of projects, including mixed-use urban developments, corporate headquarters, educational and cultural institutions, and public parks and civic spaces. Clients have come to expect fresh, inventive solutions that are solidly grounded in ecological sciences and advanced construction technologies. The firm’s principals, Laurie Olin, Dennis McGlade, Lucinda Sanders, Susan Weiler and David Rubin bring a wide range of complementary expertise to the diversity of the firm.
