Landscape Design Alumni Series: Landscape Design: Where Art and Ecology Meet

Date & Time

START: 1:00 PM February 25, 2014
END: 3:00 PM February 25, 2014


The intersection of art and science is nowhere more obvious than in landscape design, which, at its best, can be considered “ecological art”: providing outdoor spaces that are experientially rich, ecologically sound, “of the place,” and dynamic-or changing-over time. This presentation will look at naturally evolving landscapes and the processes and patterns in them, from which lessons can be learned that will help enrich the art of design, followed by a look at designed landscapes inspired by the botanic and aesthetic composition of regional native plant communities.

The instructor, Darrel Morrison, FASLA, taught in the Landscape Architecture Department at the University of Wisconsin for 14 years where his emphasis was on native plants, native plant communities, and landscape restoration. Subsequently, he taught in the School of Environmental Design at the University of Georgia where he served as Dean from 1983 to 1992. Currently he lives in New York City and continues his private landscape practice.

LA, CES, and APLD CEUs are available
