Founded by Paul Haden in 1985, The Collaborative West was created to promote excellence in Landscape Architecture. Making imagination a goal in itself, TCW is dedicated to the pursuit of ideas, from the dramatic to the whimsical.

The realization of this goal is most beneficial and productive when we focus on a design process that involves the collaboration of the client and experts from a variety of disciplines to achieve the highest quality design solutions. Thus our name, The Collaborative West, an energetic, state-of-the-art professional services firm providing landscape architecture, environmental design, planning and urban design throughout the world.

We look forward to projects that challenge our creativity and offer a partnership among our clients, the community and the landscape.
