Design Excellence & Four New Associates

Images above are from our past public engagement sessions – a key component of Land Collective’s iterative design process that ensures resulting projects resonate with community wishes, wants, and needs.

We are thrilled to announce that Land Collective has been selected as part of the Northwest Arkansas Design Excellence Program, which promotes the highest level of design in the development of public buildings and spaces in Northwest Arkansas.

As a design studio that works closely with cities and communities to empower citizenry in a manner that supports individual and collective identity, we’re looking forward to working with the Walton Family Foundation to fulfill their mission to address planning challenges associated with the region’s rapid growth, and to create welcoming public spaces that foster meaningful, shared experiences.

To start our new year, we’re excited to introduce and celebrate our four new Associates – Gabbi Salvemini, Henry Moll, Lindsey Tabor, and Brian Staresnick. Their deep design experience, leadership on complex projects, and commitment to Land Collective’s mission – to practice empathetically in support of socially purposeful design – are a testament to their ability to guide our studio forward. Lindsey and Brian lead our Indianapolis Studio, now at 55 Monument Circle, Suite 1300D.
