The Architectural League’s annual Emerging Voices program spotlights North American architects, landscape architects, and urban designers who have significant bodies of realized work and the potential to influence their field.

Landing Studio is a 2022 Emerging Voice.

Landing Studio is a Massachusetts-based architecture and urban design practice led by founding principals Daniel Adams and Marie Law Adams. From marine docks to highway underpasses, the studio reimagines active industrial and infrastructural sites as accessible public spaces. It describes its work as “[leveraging] the unique scales and qualities of these spaces to bring spectacular, monumental, and delightful dimensions into the public realm.”

Projects include:

Daniel Adams holds a BSArch from the University of Michigan and an MArch from Harvard’s Graduate School of Design. He is currently the director of the School of Architecture at Northeastern University.

Marie Law Adams holds a BSArch from the University of Michigan and an MArch from MIT. She is a lecturer on urban design at MIT. 

Landing Studio has received numerous awards and recognitions, including The Architectural League Prize for Young Architects + Designers, the Norman B. Leventhal City Prize, two AIA National Honor Awards, a Gold National Planning Award for Urban Design, and a Progressive Architecture Award from Architect Magazine.
