About GGN
Gustafson Guthrie Nichol Ltd. is a landscape architecture practice with special experience in designing high-use landscapes in complex, urban contexts. Based in Seattle, GGN works throughout the Americas and Asia. Its projects are developed by designers with professional backgrounds in landscape, architecture, engineering, graphics, ecology, and other sciences. GGN’s award-winning projects include Lurie Garden in Chicago's Millennium Park, which brings the ecology of Chicago's native prairie into a dense downtown neighborhood. For Landscape Forms GGN has designed the Maggie bench and Charlie table, and UrbanEdge, an integrated collection of site elements that looks at design and planning for the city center in a new way. Project awards include multiple ASLA National Design Excellence Awards and AIA/ASLA Honor and Merit awards for Design, and the 2012 Tucker Design Award. In 2011, GGN was the recipient of the Smithsonian's prestigious Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Award for Landscape Architecture.

Urban space is valuable real estate and too much of it is underused. UrbanEdge is a collection of landscape framing and furniture elements designed specifically to help designers make more effective use of under utilized space. Created in collaboration with award-winning landscape architects Gustafson Guthrie Nichol (GGN,) the collection looks at the urban fabric with a fresh eye.

The rail is a stand-up performer. With the 3” top it is the perfect leaning rail at transit stops. With the 12” top it becomes a convenient café or bar counter. Standing alone, it stakes out space. With mesh infill, it provides separation and enclosure for restaurants with sidewalk seating.
