Reaching beyond constraints of their sites, landscape architects often create works that are memorable in concept and realization. This session explores ways in which the creative spirit fuels the design process in the work of three landscape architects known for their inspired designs: James Burnett, Signe Nielsen, and Kongjian Yu.

Learning Objectives:

  • Discover the role of creative imagination in the design process of three outstanding landscape architects working today.
  • Learn how an unorthodox line of thought, or an unexpected inspiration, can lead to unusual—perhaps magical—design solutions that meet all the criteria of professional work today.
  • Understand the ways in which landscape architects find paths to problem solving and design expression by drawing on their personal histories and diverse interests.
  • Be inspired to explore and expand your own sources of inspiration.
