Welcome to Fletcher Studio — a landscape architecture and urban design collaborative, based in San Francisco
We believe design matters, and that people deserve to find value, meaning, and possibility in the places they encounter and occupy. We work with city makers, communities and other visionaries to realize evocative and appropriate concepts, designed and constructed to ensure social vitality and integrity.
We leverage technology to work faster and smarter; people, ideas and culture are the drivers of our process. From biologists and foresters to musicians and neighbors, we collaborate with a host of partners to skillfully integrate sustainable infrastructure and meaningful experiences into enduring, evolving spaces.
Our studio and collaborators bring a wide array of experience ranging across science, design, art, horticulture, construction, and politics. Collectively, we are able to distill complex spatial analysis into high-functioning built environments that connect communities to places through inclusion, delight, and recognition of their capacity to best steward the places and objects we design.
We Are A Team Of Many Talents

David is the founding principal of Fletcher Studio. He has practiced in landscape architecture for 28 years, and during that time he has worked on large planning projects such as the Los Angeles River Master Plan, and projects as small as furniture design. He derives great pleasure from interacting with communities and individuals to realize visions and dreams.
Cory has over thirteen years of design and project management experience and has been working as a landscape designer in the Bay Area for eleven years. His deep passion for design and the culmination of art, science, technology and the natural and the built environments, along with his experience, allows Cory to design spaces that improve the quality of life and inspire engagement with the natural world while creating social interactions in everyday life.
Chris has an international education that led him to study across Australia, South Korea, and Iceland. The focuses of these studies were based on the interactions and overlap between natural and built environments. Practicing in California, Chris investigates and distills complex natural systems found in the California landscape to bring natural environments into closer interactions with an equally complex urban context.
Lauren is a project manager and designer with six years of experience designing and managing a range of projects, including large urban mixed-use districts, city streetscapes, green infrastructure, public parks, high-end resort communities, multi-family housing, and recently forest cemeteries. She is focused on creating beloved public spaces that are inventive and contextually appropriate. She also has unique experience using innovative community engagement tactics to better understand a community’s desires. As a Project Manager at Fletcher Studio, Lauren works alongside studio principals to develop and implement design objectives, oversees project documentation, and provides day-to-day communication with clients and project teams.
Victor graduated with a degree in Landscape Architecture from Melbourne, Australia. He has worked on a variety of landscape architecture, building architecture and urban design projects across Asia and Oceania, ranging from large-scale urban, architectural master planning to small scale boutique landscape and interior design. Victor has continuously practiced design in an interdisciplinary fashion where he explores the junctures of art, design and technology and how they interweave into our spatial and social environments. He has recently received a qualification in Digital Craft from the Master of Advance Architectural Design program from CCA.
Andrew Prindle graduated from the University of Washington’s MLA Program and won a 2018 ASLA National Honor Award for Design with Kasia Keeley, and is a 2017 WASLA Scholar Honor Award recipient. While at the University of Washington, Andrew served as a teaching and technical assistant for history and studio courses and was one of the original team members of Urban@UW and the Livable City Year program. He has collaborated on different book projects focused on mapping, urban resistance, and design and democracy. Andrew’s approach to design is rooted in theory and history and balanced by years working in horticulture and construction. His current fascinations are floodplains, wetlands, and nuclear waste.
Liza has a liberal arts background with emphasis in fine arts and agriculture. She holds a MLA from the University of Virginia, where she adapted and developed research and design methods to meet site conditions as varied as urban post-industrial river fronts, climatically volatile deltas, sensitive arctic tundra, National Park – neighborhood interfaces, and suburban campus gardens. Liza has experience working at a range of scales in practice, from large mixed-use projects that weave together public and private spheres to custom-detailed site elements. She draws inspiration from the people, plants, and creatures that inhabit each site. She strives to incorporate the multiplicity of their experiences into landscape designs that will both nourish and delight.
