Launched in 2001, L.A. Design Associates has built a practice in the face of change. We see the world around us as a dynamic system of interactions and relationships where we can contribute in meaningful ways through design. We make spaces for people.



Our process is collaborative and our approach – synergistic, and through lenses of value and comfort, safety and sustainability. From Master Planning through subsequent phases of design and construction, we work closely with Clients and Owners to optimize project needs, budget and schedule. We have learned to listen, to anticipate and be proactive, to expect the unexpected, to be both flexible and resilient and to always bring something of value to the table. Always.

area development

We cut our teeth in themed Landscape Architecture, otherwise known as Area Development, and Show Set. Both as highly specialized industries which include theme parks and attractions, resorts and museums, and focus on storytelling. We bring to the table a seasoned blend of creative and artistic development skills, out of the box technical problem solving, extensive knowledge of plants and materials worldwide, high production values, field art mastery and mountains of coordination, all to tell a story!

In keeping with industry protocol, our assurance of Client privacy and standing Non-Disclosure Agreements, we are limited in the display of projects and artwork on our website. For further information and inquiry, please contact our office.

Our Clients

We enjoy the relationships that develop in working closely and responsively with our Clients.


To each project we bring a charter for developing thoughtful yet practical design solutions on a foundation of dedicated, committed Client service and always the personal attention and accountability of Bradley J. Biben, Managing Principal.
