With the architecture boom in China over the past few years, many design studios have opened up new offices in the country to aid communication with potential and existing clients and enhance their engagement with the local design community.
The latest practice to open an office in China is landscape architecture and urban design firm EDSA, an internationally-renowned firm with more than 50 years of industry experience and projects completed on six continents. EDSA has now expanded with an office in the heart of Shanghai, headed by B. Scott LaMont, Greggory R. Sutton and Courtney J. Moore.
EDSA President Douglas C. Smith detailed: “China is an important market for continued growth for EDSA and we have embraced the opportunity to practice in this culturally-enriched region. Our success is a testament to the dedication, flexibility and diversity of our staff. Our vision is to capitalise on EDSA’s worldwide experience and expand our presence throughout Asia by developing an EDSA branded studio to augment our US based efforts in the region.”
