Laurie Olin, Landscape Architect & Partner, Olin Studio

For acclaimed landscape architect Laurie Olin, there is more to landscape than folks with a truck planting shrubs. For thousands of years, humans have interacted with their environment: loving it, fearing it, changing it, and considering it a subject for art, philosophy, preservation, and recreation. It shapes us as we shape it.

Presented in conjunction with Quest for Beauty: The Architecture, Landscapes, and Collections of John Yeon, on view May 13 through September 3, 2017.
