Immersive Landscapes with Andrea Cochran
“Drawing inspiration from early Modernist architects and Minimalist artists, landscape architect Andrea Cochran’s work is distinguished by its careful awareness of site, climate, and qualities of the existing environment. Spare geometry applied to vibrant plant life and a controlled palette of materials results in sharp compositional order, yielding landscapes that convey a heightened sense of texture, light, and movement. She will discuss her process of shaping space in both small gardens and larger landscapes to foster a deeper respect for our natural environment.”
