In 1993, Franklin Po returned to his native Singapore after 25 years of rigorous training in the United States. With a vision for the future, his aim was to create a design firm that would transform architectural landscapes across Asia. The result is TierraPOD.

Derived from "Terra," the Latin word for "earth," and "Pod", the incubatorial womb of a seed – to jointly represent "germination from the earth" – TierraPOD focuses on thoughtful design that is both holistic and elegant, yet practical and simple. Faithful to these origins, TierraPOD depends heavily on bringing the rhythms and hues of the earth, and the built environment to life by incorporating natural materials, colors, and sounds into integrated spaces. At the core of Tierra POD's design approach are the people and their communities. A graceful play between active and passive forces helps people connect to their environment harmoniously.

With projects across 12 countries, TierraPOD draws from a growing interdisciplinary pool of talent that includes architects, engineers, designers, and scientists. They offer services focused on holistic integration of the built environment, including architecture, landscape architecture, master-planning, and interior design. Read Less

Franklin Po is a registered architect, both in Singapore and in California. He has been in practice since 1973. Franklin is intensely committed to advancing the standards and quality of life in Asia through good design. Tierra’s success in landscape architecture stems from Franklin’s unwavering belief that the barrier between landscape and architecture does not exist. Successful project outcomes culminate from the blending of architectural form with flora, fauna and terra firma that ultimately create desirable designs with a measured visual balance to best suit the site and the clients’ needs.

Franklin has transformed the way landscape architecture is perceived by clients and has raised the bar for the landscape design profession in Singapore. Engaged by clients in Hong Kong, China, Thailand, Taiwan, India, Vietnam, Malaysia and Singapore, Tierra have since won numerous awards and distinctions for its aesthetic excellence. Read Less
