Keith VanDerSys is co-founder of PEG office of landscape + architecture, an award-winning design and research practice based in Philadelphia. PEG’s work explores the relationship among digital media, fabrication technology and construction. Through new media and fabrication technologies, PEG’s work explores methods of systemic patterning to expand landscape’s expressive agency in the shaping of the public realm. The use of these tools and techniques has created a signature aesthetic, establishing PEG as part of the next generation in the field of landscape design.
The firm has been published extensively and won numerous design awards, including the 2010 Emerging New York Architects Prize, 2010 Architectural League Prize, and a 2011 Boston Society of Architects Research Grant for work pertaining to geo-cell customization. PEG was the featured practice in ELA environment & landscape architecture of Korea (August 2008) and Landscape World (September 2010).
