120 Landscape Architect and Specifier News Cooper Carry Atlanta, Georgia Intergraph Corporate Headquarters Huntsville, Alabama Intergraph, an engineering and geospatial software company, needed a new headquarters to bring 1,100 employees under one roof. The landscape design for the five-story 250,000 sq. ft. facility was envisioned as a painting, with large swaths of ornamental grasses, flowering perennials and shrubs. Constructed mounds and hills give the engaging landscape an ebb and flow through the site. The over 6,000 shrubs and groundcovers and over 450 trees of all scales have transformed the site from an open field to a botanical garden. Cooper Carry focuses on innovative designs for exceptional places. Since its founding in 1960, the firm has steadily built a reputation for attention to detail, thoughtful design and client service. Landscape architects, architects, planners, environmental graphic designers and sustainability consultants make up Cooper Carry's core disciplines. The firm is led by 48 principals and associate principals: 32 senior associates and associates, and a supporting staff of over 200. The firm's 10 landscape architects and planners work on a wide range of projects.
