Lab for Planning and Architecture
LPA is a leading planning and design firm founded by Juan Palop-Casado and Cristina Suarez Lacalle. LPA focuses on the sustainable and organic development of southern regions and territories—the so-called subtropics that feature semi-arid and Mediterranean environmental regimes. LPA has a deep commitment to the specific potentialities of the subtropics, which are deployed in line with the principles and protocols of the philosophy of eco-design thinking. LPA provides services in the fields of strategic development, master planning, urban design, infrastructures and landscape architecture, with an expertise in urban typologies related to subtropical climates: waterfronts, tourist destinations, eco-resorts, public spaces, recreational spaces, outdoor commercial areas... With offices in the Canary Islands and Madrid, LPA is engaged in projects in the two subtropical strips that run around the globe, where regular collaborations with local partners and consultants are established.
