Tom Leader Studio, a collaborative and experimental design office formed in 2001, is among the most exciting new voices in landscape architecture today. Wit, playfulness, and experimentation play an important role in the studio's work, which seeks a balance between speculative designs and built works, including the Pool Pavilion Forest in the Napa Valley, the Birmingham Railroad Reservation Park in Alabama (currently under construction), and Park Merced, a housing site in San Francisco. Formerly a partner in the firm of Peter Walker and Partners, Tom Leader is known for his fresh and imaginative landscape designs, which engage the root elements of landscape without reverting to sentimentalism.

The latest addition to our successful Source Books in Landscape Architecture Series, Tom Leader Studio features three of the firm's projects: the Pool Pavilion Forest, the Birmingham Railroad Park, and the competition entry for Shelby Farms Park in Memphis.

Tom Leader Studio presents enlightening discussions between editor Jason Kentner and Tom Leader. An essay by Philippe Coigner of the Office of Landscape Morphology rounds out this useful volume.


Jason Kentner is an assistant professor of landscape architecture at the Ohio State University's Knowlton School of Architecture. He is cofounder of influx studio, a research and design collaborative focusing on infrastructural landscapes and architecture.
