RAFT specializes in the design of campuses and civic spaces. We create ecologically rich and resource-efficient landscapes which inspire lasting bonds between people and place.
Since our launch in 2012, RAFT has emerged as a small firm with the capacity to achieve significant civic landscapes.

Delia Kulukundis is passionate about landscape research. She dives deeply into the ecological and historical context of sites, microclimate modeling, usage mapping, and stakeholder engagement. As a landscape designer, she draws on the fruits of her site-specific research to create built projects with integrity and substance. Her logical mind and careful communication skills are critical to the design process at RAFT. Delia holds a Masters of Landscape Architecture from the University of Virginia.
Andersen Woof is a landscape designer and visual artist based in New York City and Baltimore. His work strives to create meaningful places and stories to foster communication and dialogue. Andersen holds a Master of Landscape Architecture from Rhode Island School of Design and a Master of Urban Planning and Design from Beijing Forestry University. He believes landscape is the projection of ourselves — we build landscape and landscape shapes us as well. Andersen is currently working on multiple public and private landscape architecture projects in the New York area, and recently published the first chapter of his graphic novel series, “Infinity Park”, which examines the conflicts between seeing and being seen, perfection and imperfection, love and sexuality, architecture and landscape.
