MFLA [Marta Fry Landscape Associates] is a San Francisco based urban design and landscape architecture Studio established in 1990. Recognized as a “design studio” MFLA is structured in an atelier fashion in which collaboration and design team interface is critical to the success of our projects. MFLA approaches each project regardless of scale with a site-specific response. Believing that the landscape is one of the most potent and lasting forms of cultural expression, Marta leads the Studio in the exploration of these intersections and complex relationships between environmental, social, and cultural systems. The Studio’s objective is to reveal and express these dynamic relationships in forms and compositions that enable vital understandings and re-connections to place.
The Studio’s commissions comprise a diverse portfolio from land-use and master planning, community engagement, cultural landscapes, parks and streetscapes, re-development and re-imaging of properties, product branding and prototypes, residential estates, multi-use commercial and residential developments, agricultural properties, resort and hospitality, campuses and civic and cultural landscapes.
