Women in the Dirt Trailer 1 from Wind Media Productions on Vimeo.
Women in the Dirt highlights the work of seven award-winning women who have made their mark in the field: Mia Lerher, Andrea Cochran, Cheryl Barton, Isabelle Greene, Katherine Spitz, Pamela Palmer, and Lauren Melendrez. Though each has a unique body of work, their concerns overlap in the realm of sustainability and enduring design. Their projects mingle awareness of architectural and landscape principles, concern with sustainability and safety, sensitivity to beauty and functionality. The scope of their work ranges from private homes to vast public projects.
Through conversations with the architects in their offices or outdoors in the stunning spaces they’ve designed, the film explores each woman’s personal aesthetics and approach to their discipline. Women in the Dirt shows how these “masters of the obvious” create the sublime.
Director Carolann Stoney conceived of the idea for this documentary while she herself was studying landscape architecture.
