Location is still to be determined, but come hear Gulliver Shepard from Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates speak.
A little background on the company:
At Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates, we are inspired by the power of landscape architecture to deliver beauty in its many forms: rational, lyrical, and exuberant. We believe that the most meaningful landscapes anticipate what they will mean to their many audiences and emerge from straightforward, elegant problem-solving techniques. Our work is unfussy and original, sustainable and enjoyable, democratic and direct. MVVA believes that landscape plays a critical role in shaping a positive experience of place—both found and designed—and that a strong sense of place helps enhance everyday experience, healthy communities, and quality of life, which are at the heart of a livable city.
