Virtual Talk 7-21-22: Wrestling with Contradictions: Labor and Ecology in California's Modernist Gardens

2:00 PM- 3:00 PM

In this webinar David Godshall and Jenny Jones of TERREMOTO, a young landscape architecture design studio with offices in Los Angeles and San Francisco, will discuss the preservation and ethics of garden design for mid-century Modernist houses. Godshall and Jones will explore how the historic landscapes for these properties are rarely as sophisticated as the design of the houses, posing interesting challenges for the social and environmental principles that guide their practice.

TERREMOTO, which means “earthquake” in Italian, was founded with the express  purpose of disrupting old conventions of how landscapes are created and maintained. That mission has helped catapult TERREMOTO into one of today’s hottest young landscape firms in southern California. David Godshall received a master’s degree from UC Berkeley and holds a CLARB registration in California. Prior to founding TERREMOTO, David worked at Peter Walker and Partners in Berkeley, California and was a project manager at Surface Design in San Francisco. Jenny Jones taught middle school science before earning a master’s degree from the University of Virginia. Prior to joining TERREMOTO, Jenny worked at Olin and Rios Clementi Hale.
