This debut monograph of the visionary landscape architecture firm OJB uncovers the philosophy that guides the practice and reveals the transformative power of landscape through a selection of case studies drawn from the firm’s thirty-year history.

Founded in 1989 by landscape architect James Burnett, OJB—the Office of James Burnett—has since grown to nearly one hundred professionals working across five offices and has established itself as a leader in the field for its ambitious approach to community-building through landscape.

At its core, the firm believes that landscape is a social and collective tool for integration, reclamation, and healing. This principle guides all of the firm’s projects across sectors, from its designs promoting restorative healthcare, such as campuses for hospitals and wellness centers, to large-scale urban landscapes conceived to reconnect and revitalize communities, such as the acclaimed Myriad Botanical Gardens and the other initiatives completed as part of Oklahoma City’s Project 180 public works program.

This book highlights OJB’s remarkable and meaningful work—and the philosophy that drives it—through projects of varied typologies arranged in a rhythm progressing from single works to longer multi-project narratives in which landscapes connect and build on each other over several years to create thoughtfully realized and impactful environments.

OJB are leaders in the landscape architecture for urban environments. James Burnett received the 2016 ASLA Design Medal, one of the highest honors for an individual landscape architect, for his creation of “graceful, human-scaled, and sustainable built landscapes that yielded some of the most recognized and beloved urban environments worldwide.” OJB received the 2015 ASLA Firm Award (for “projects consistently cited for innovative and iconoclastic redefinition of human interaction with the environment”) and more than 90 other design awards

OJB Landscape Architecture challenges the conventional boundaries of landscape architecture, emphasizing placemaking as a mechanism for healing, gathering, and celebration. OJB is the recipient of more than ninety state and national design awards, including several national awards for the creation of urban parks that return civic engagement to the forefront of cities.
Christopher Hawthorne is Los Angeles’s first Chief Design Officer. Prior to that, he was the architecture critic for the Los Angeles Times from 2004 to 2018, the architecture critic for Slate, and a frequent contributor to the New York Times.

Peter Walker is an internationally recognized landscape architect and founder of PWP Landscape Architecture. Over five decades, Walker has designed parks, gardens, corporate headquarters, urban landscapes, campuses, museums, and memorials around the world.
