GEO Architectonica

ArqGEO has been redefining landscape architecture in South Florida for nearly 15 years. While the firm welcomes international commissions, Miami is home. Incorporated in 2005, ArqGEO, led by Laurinda H. Spear and Margarita Blanco, two women steeped in architecture, has elevated the conversation about the important role landscape architecture plays and the contributions it can make in the face of climate change and sea level rise. Our projects address not only ecological objectives, but also add community value and elevate the return on investment of our clients by improving performance and livability. Our approach is clear. To design innovative and bold solutions that respond to the existing conditions of the site and are adaptive to climate change, sea level rise, restores biodiversity, and enhances the human experience. Mixing resiliency with beautiful functional landscapes has created a level of awareness in communities and the world at large where the understanding of nature being incorporated into the built environment is a priority. ArqGEO works in close collaboration with clients, architects, planners, engineers, developers and construction professionals to create aesthetic and functional design solutions. The international, multi-disciplinary and multi-cultural richness of our firm provides the expertise to examine projects from all angles and the agility to respond to changing issues of global concern.
