    Landscape Vision Lecture: Gardens for American Institutions: Reflections on Recent Practice

Now they are connected both architecturally and socially with their place in the world, often through ambitious and welcoming landscapes.

    Olin reflects on this evolution and presents work by his firm for museums and libraries over the last thirty years.

    Formerly treasure boxes turned inward, American museums and cultural institutions have made dramatic shifts in their perceptions of themselves and social engagement. Now they are connected both architecturally and socially with their place in the world, often through ambitious and welcoming landscapes.

    Olin reflects on this evolution and presents work by his firm for museums and libraries over the last thirty years.

    Laurie Olin, landscape architect, author, and teacher, has won numerous awards for his urban projects, including the National Gallery of Art Sculpture Garden, Washington, DC, the redesign of Columbus Circle in Manhattan and Bryant Park.
