Kate Cullity presents at The Aesthetics of Planting Design symposium

February 2018

TCL Director Kate Cullity recently presented at “The Aesthetics of Planting Design,” an international symposium held at the University of California Berkeley.

Curated by noted landscape historian and critic Marc Treib, the event hosted twelve accomplished landscape architects and historians who discussed planting design as an environmental art, using examples drawn from their own design work as well as projects by others, both contemporary and historical: from the United States, Latin America, Europe, and Scandinavia; from southern deserts to northern forests; from within and beyond the city; from the garden to the region.

Kate’s lecture was titled "Botanical Stories from the Antipodes."

The full program of speakers included:
Thorbjörn Andersson / Stockholm, Sweden
Cristina Castel-Branco / Lisbon, Portugal
Alexandre Chemetoff / Paris, France
