Introducing IBI Placemaking

Oct 01, 2019


CRJA-IBI Group continues as IBI Placemaking


IBI Placemaking emerged from the culmination of eight years of collaboration between CRJA, founded in 1959 by Carol R. Johnson, and IBI Group, a world-wide multidisciplinary design firm. IBI Group, based in Toronto, recognized the value of our expertise in landscape architecture and our ability to serve as the US center of excellence in placemaking.

Our passion is inspired by our love for people and the planet. We believe that Landscape Architecture holds a unique responsibility to create a better, more resilient world for us and future generations. As landscape architects, we create healthy and beautiful spaces, the success of which is ultimately measured by the people who enjoy it, enliven it and make it their own, but also by the natural systems that flourish within it. These are Places for Life.
