David Walker on the transformation of urban centers

0

In his lecture at the Boston Architectural College, David Walker, FASLA, discusses the work of PWP Landscape Architecture, a firm of about 45 landscape architects in Berkeley, California. The firm’s extensive portfolio demonstrates its ability to work on large complex sites, collaborating with world-renowned architects and corporate and governmental clients and developing clear design strategies that can succeed over an extended planning and construction process.

The firm’s primary goal lies in the success of the built work. Their projects, specifically the World Trade Center Memorial, the Novartis Campus, and Barangaroo, demonstrate PWP’s process of reconstructing large and complex urban sites with major infrastructure and the importance of conveying a consistent and legible design message all the way through construction.
