These essays reflect the interests of O2 Landscapes staff members and associates, and cover subjects relating to design and horticulture. They also serve the purpose of explaining some of the influences that contribute to our work. We place smaller articles, on a much more frequent basis, in the Journal section of the website.

We have designated a separate section of essays that concern the work of Carlo Scarpa, the great Italian architect, whose work represents an important influence for us. In addition to his mastery with materials and details, Scarpa was remarkable for his ability to sensitively integrate tradition with modern design.
