Reception & Lecture with Martha Schwartz CANCELLED!
Dive into a discussion with Martha Schwartz, Professor in Practice of Landscape Architecture, founding member of Harvard's Working Group for Sustainable Cities, and internationally-renowned innovator in design and climate change mitigation.
A member of the Blue Ribbon Committee on Climate Change at the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) and recipient of numerous national and international design awards, Martha Schwartz has revolutionized the way we think about urban sustainability. For instance, her firm contributed to the Seattle Mass Timber Tower Case Study in 2018, helping local architects develop "strategies that balance LEED requirements, coworking amenities, millennial preferences and, of course, cost of construction." She is the founder and principal of Martha Schwartz Partners, with offices in New York, London, and Shanghai, and examples of her prolific work include Grand Canal Square (Dublin, Ireland), Mesa Arts Center (Mesa, AZ), and Monte Laar Central Park (Vienna, Austria).
