Peter Crowley is partner and president of LandDesign, founded thirty years ago to create memorable exterior experiences through its urban design, land planning, civil engineering, landscape architecture and branding services.

He actively advocates aligning client needs with market conditions, bringing stakeholders together, embracing and sustaining the environment, and differentiating a place to engage the user.
Over the last five years, Peter has emphasized these approaches as he led the firm into China where it has now established an office in Beijing and completed several large-scale and influential projects, including planning the new district of Baotou, Inner Mongolia that eventually is projected to house a population of 600,000 and development of a 73-million square foot software park west of Shanghai.

From the Washington, DC office that he established in 1983, Peter coordinates the work of multidisciplinary teams operating in LandDesignâ€™s six U.S. offices and the Beijing office, with the stated objective of creating a balance between market forces and design aspirations.
