Favorite Designers

Without doubt Frederick Law Olmstead considered the father of landscape architecture and for his design contribution to the public park system as well as his pioneering of the  planned communities. Olmstead set a standard of excellence in the practice that continues to be influential to landscape architecture.

Luis Barragan, an engineer by profession, had amazing skills in architecture and landscape architecture design. Barragan had a huge influence in architects and landscape architects throughout the world and revered for the geometry and color use in his designs.

Roberto Burle Marx, although not a trained architect, was a trained artist, painter, textile designer, sculptor, glass and tile designer but most of all, due to his design talent and interest in horticulture became the most influential garden and paving designer of the past century. The world claims him as one of the best at landscape architecture of the past century.

Lawrence Halprin must be one of my favorites, articularly when you think of his public spaces such as Charlottesville Downtown Mall, Ghirardelli Square and the FDR Memorial.  I believe his teaching experience made him to be among the first to create community workshops into the design process.  Halprin was a master at  fusing creative art and ecology.
