VWA was founded by landscape architect Craig P. Verzone and architect Cristina Woods in 1995. Cristina Woods studied visual arts and architecture at Harvard and has taught in the architecture program at the University of Geneva. Craig P. Verzone studied landscape architecture at Cornell University and Urban Design at Harvard and received the Rome Prize in Landscape Architecture from the American Academy in 1998. Both have taught at the University of Virginia School of Architecture, the Architecture Program of Fribourg at the University of Applied Sciences of Western Switzerland and the Harvard Graduate School of Design. VWA works on landscape, urban design, architectural projects and temporary installations. Exploring the intersection of these realms is important to our design process. We pursue invention, and although our work can be analysis driven, we ascribe to no predetermined design approach. Our studio relies upon the observation of historic and contemporary models of made landscapes so as to generate new ones.
Please visit our website for more information regarding the studio at www.vwa.ch.
