Anna Swanberg, PLA joined LAND studio in 2012 as a project manager. Her work is centered on projects with an environmental and landscape focus, including ongoing work with the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District and various trail project initiatives. She joined LAND studio shortly after moving to Cleveland. Most recently she lived in Philadelphia, where she practiced landscape architecture focusing on the design of public spaces in the urban environment. She is a registered landscape architect and holds a BLA from North Carolina State University. Although a North Carolina native, Anna is excited to now call Cleveland home and to help effect positive change for the city and region.
LAND studio's mission is to create places and connect people through public art, sustainable building and design, collaborative planning, and dynamic programming. .LAND studio was formed in 2011 through the merger of Cleveland Public Art (CPA) and ParkWorks, two of Cleveland's leading non-profit organizations focused on enhancing public spaces.
Historically, CPA had accomplished this through stimulating public art and ParkWorks through the creation and care of inviting greenspaces. But each organization evolved over time to embrace larger roles in the envisioning, planning, designing, building, and programming of Cleveland's public spaces. And this evolution was a collaborative one, with both organizations working together more frequently on multiple projects citywide.
Eventually, the two parent organizations came to the conclusion that by becoming more than occasional partners, they could accomplish even greater work for Cleveland. Thus, after a thoughtful merger process, LAND studio was born.
