Andrea Cochran Landscape Architecture

Andrea Cochran, Recipient of the 2014 Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian National Design Award in Landscape Architecture, believes that design has the power to alter perception and initiate a deeper respect for the environment. Cochran’s works invite users to forge new relationships with their surroundings. By juxtaposing ordered architectural forms with permeable, mutable materials of landscape, Cochran draws attention to important moments in nature and highlights ephemeral and transitory elements of our natural world. For her sustained body of work, Cochran received the 2014 ASLA Design Medal and the 2015 Mercedes T. Bass Landscape Architecture Residency at the American Academy in Rome.
