where life flourishes

September Speaker Series

September 27th, 6.30pm

Topic: A Modern Landscape Architecture Roadtrip Through the PNW

Presenter: Spencer W. Stuart

Spencer W. Stuart will deliver a roadmap to urban parks designed after WWII that have redefined the practice of landscape architecture in North America. From this presentation, attendees will be inspired to hit the road, equipped with the locations of these sites, their historical context as well as the biography of the practitioners that imagined them.
