VWA was founded in 1995 by landscape architect and urban designer Craig P. Verzone and architect Cristina Woods. After working on their own for the first 5 years they have since relied upon the collaboration of 2 to 8 colleagues at any given time. VWA offers an internship program which brings students from around the world to the studio for 2 to 6 month periods. Verzone and Woods are both highly invested in the interdependence of teaching and practice.
VWA is a collaborative, multi-disciplinary practice working on landscape, urban design, and architecture projects as well as temporary installations and exploring the intersection of these realms is essential to our design process.
