Steve Lang (ASLA) is an award-winning landscape architect who has dedicated his career to creating outdoor environments that offer memorable, positive human connections with each other and with nature. His early artistic talents converged with his love for the spaces beyond building walls to forge a 40-year vocation. Licensed in four states, Steve’s work can be found around schools and sports fields, in forests and downtowns, through plazas and parks, and along streets and waterways. He believes there is a deeper story to every project and he strives to bring it to the surface through interpretation, education, and art. Steve also recognizes and values the lasting impact of his designs. Time is the added dimension that brings out the full potential of his landscapes. A scattering of sycamores transforms into a giant grove. A sand dredging pit becomes a nature park and multi-use trail. A transit corridor turns into an ocean shoreline-themed outdoor art gallery and entertainment destination. Steve has taken hundreds of projects from a concept on paper to a reality on the ground. His creativity, communication skills, and attentive listening elicit ideas and visions that he translates into conceptual studies, master plans, and construction drawings. Through their engagement in Steve’s design process, clients and communities understand and embrace project goals and challenges; and ultimately, gain a sense of ownership and pride in the final, physical outcomes—outcomes that can last a lifetime.
Steve is Director of the Fullerton office.
