In a series of vignettes chosen from her book, Susan Cohen reveals the specific—and often unexpected—design inspirations of landscape architects now working around the world, tracing each project from the initial spark of creativity through stunning completion. The projects include a roof garden at the Museum of Modern Art in New York inspired by a French film made in the 1950s, a drought-resistant landscape in California inspired by a Van Gogh painting, a campus plaza in Israel inspired by desert wadis, and a Shinto shrine garden in Japan designed by a Zen Buddhist priest.
Susan Cohen is an award-winning Connecticut landscape architect and a Fellow of the American Society of Landscape Architects. A graduate of Smith College and the recipient of a landscape architecture degree from CCNY, she is also a teacher, lecturer, and the Coordinator of the Landscape Design Program at the New York Botanical Garden, where she founded the celebrated Landscape Design Portfolio lecture series. Her book, The Inspired Landscape: Twenty-One Leading Landscape Architects Explore the Creative Process, was published by Timber Press in 2015.
A book sale and signing will be held after the lecture.
