When: 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM MONDAY, JUNE 11
Where: At The Center
Diana Balmori, FASLA and Joel Sanders, AIA will present their book Groundwork: Between Landscape and Architecture.
Groundwork: Between Landscape and Architecture is an appeal to designers to pursue a new approach that overcomes the false dichotomy between landscape and architecture. It encourages them to pursue a new integrated design approach dedicated to the creation of formally inventive sustainable environments. Diana Balmori and Joel Sanders bring together a collection of twenty-five groundbreaking works by an international roster of architects and landscape architects that dissolve the boundaries between landscape and architecture.
“Beyond any ecological agenda, what truly excites us about architecture and landscape joining forces is that it promises to be a catalyst for creativity.”
Diana Balmori, FASLA is the founding principal of Balmori Associates, a New York-based landscape and urban design office. She creates public spaces around the globe— among them, a 35,000-squarefoot green roof in New York City; a stair-climbing garden in Bilbao, Spain; and a master plan for the new administrative city of Sejong in South Korea.
Joel Sanders, AIA is the Principal of the New York–based practice Joel Sanders Architect. He is a Professor of Architecture at Yale University. His work has been featured in numerous exhibitions at international institutions including the Art Institute of Chicago, Vitra Design Museum, SF MoMA, Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum, and MoMA.
