Living in a big city, it can be hard to find refuge from the daily grind. Landscape architecture is a rising industry that provides a sort of urban oasis, connecting people with nature in a typically hectic setting. These spaces can be both aesthetically-pleasing and practical, sometimes even finding more sustainable ways to use public space. We've compiled some of the biggest landscape architecture projects across America that are open to the public-- some were recently recognized by the American Society of Landscape Architects while others are already major landmarks in their respective cities. Take a look and vote for your favorite!
