The light-hearted and considered work of Lulu Loquidis and Daniel Luis Martinez that comprises LAA Office is confidently simple. Complex yet efficient. Showcasing the creative process as a peacock's tail, LAA Office marries the design of landscape, architecture and art. By celebrating and challenging the history and norms of architecture and design, LAA Office uniquely embraces the living element into their highly researched projects. Much like the ancient practices of bonzai and espalier, the work of LAA Office honors the natural through careful consideration of human involvement.

The office is based in Columbus, IN, which has been ranked sixth in the country for architectural innovation and design by the American Institute of Architects. Through thoughtful research, exhibitions, and design projects at multiple scales, the studio aims to speculate on the future of our built environment
