    Landscape Lecture Series: James Corner, Principal, James Corner Field Operations

    Organized by Consulting Curator of Landscape Charles Waldheim/Urban Agency, the inaugural Landscape Lectures will address how landscape design has changed the shape of American cities and open spaces in recent years, representing a shift in the way designers approach the challenges of urban life.

    “The Landscape Lectures will focus on contemporary issues in urban landscape design and the renewal of our connection with the environment and with land itself,” said Waldheim. “The transformative work of six leading practitioners of contemporary landscape architecture will shed light on the most relevant topics in urban landscape design.”

    The opening lecture will be presented by Peter Walker, a significant figure in the field of landscape architecture for more than five decades. His career includes a wide range of projects that demonstrate a specific concern for urban and environmental issues. He recently completed work on the 9/11 Memorial in New York City. Other speakers in the series include Michael Van Valkenburgh, Ken Smith, Martha Schwartz, James Corner, and George Hargreaves.
