We are a landscape architecture firm dedicated to making meaningful places and spaces where life happens. Our goal is to fully integrate all project systems (landscape, architecture, community, infrastructure) into your planning process, resulting in an exceptional, responsible, and sustainable site at any scale. We offer expertise in site and landscape design, public art, park and campus planning, public input facilitation, urban design, and design visualization (3D digital models and renderings).

A successful urban experience brings together a wide range of built and cultural components. Built forms such as transportation systems, streetscape, landscape, and buildings will integrate thoughtfully and holistically with social, economic, and other cultural systems.
We bring a unique perspective at all levels of planning. Our experience with site development, neighborhood, campus and park master planning is broad and we strive to learn from ours, and other's challenges and successes. .
Compelling interventions on the landscape have the ability to activate, enrich, and sustain community within the context of neighborhoods, districts, cities, and regions.
Partnering with MKM Architecture + Design, Contour worked to imagine a cohesive, two block arts and culture district that would attract tourists and Salt Lake City residents alike. We proposed harnessing the power of crowd-sourcing as a means through which the infrastructure and landscape are manipulated in real time according to perceived values.
