COMPANY PROFILE
was created in 2005 by Laurinda Spear, FAIA, to explore the complex challenges of contemporary built and natural environments by creating landscapes that are aesthetic and sustainable. The philosophy behind GEO’s landscape architecture is based on the principle of preserving a location’s geographic character – the entire combination of natural and human attributes that make one place distinct from another. The GEO team is Led by Laurinda Spear, George Fogg, and Margarita Blanco, and our designs are developed and produced in the firm’s headquarters in Miami. The design team is trained as both architects and landscape architects. Thus, GEO has a unique perspective on the relationship between the natural and built environment. We are also supported by a group of specialized urban planners, horticulturists and designers specifically assembled for each project. Laurinda Spear maintains a hands-on approach throughout the design process to guarantee the success of the project. Margarita Blanco acts as Project Coordinator to ensure the continuity of the overall landscape design while maintaining close coordination and communication with the client throughout the process until an authentic, sustainable project is completed.

From Left to Right: Margarita Blanco, George Fogg, and Laurinda Spear share a mission to preserve and restore the natural environment, while designing original landscape interventions with fresh and modern intents.
