Landscape Forms Typology

Landscape Forms, North America’s leading designer and manufacturer of site lighting and furniture, structure, and accessories, announces its partnership with the International Downtown Association (IDA). IDA’s focus is on revitalizing and sustaining vibrant downtowns, city centers, and neighborhoods. The organization works with business improvement districts and place management leaders worldwide to connect and empower professionals in the place management industry and provide the knowledge, research, and tools needed to create livable and prosperous urban areas.

Landscape Forms has long recognized the vital role downtowns play in the health of a region and the importance of enhancing the human experience through placemaking. The IDA shares that philosophy, describing its members as “urban champions who bring city centers to life.”

“Landscape Forms works closely with designers, business improvement districts, municipalities, and others to enhance urban life. Our lighting elements are some of the tools designers use to create safe, welcoming, and enjoyable places where people want to be. Our involvement with the IDA is a natural continuation of that work,” says Landscape Forms Lighting President Jordan Agustin. “Landscape Forms’ focus on improving the human experience in public spaces and IDA’s focus on placemaking are closely aligned. We’re excited to count ourselves amongst IDA’s members, each of whom are stakeholders across the full spectrum of public space design and advocacy.”
