Susannah Drake, the Principal of dlandstudio recently gave a lecture at the D-Crit (Design Criticism Department), School of Visual Arts in New York.

“In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, the topics of sea level rise and storm surge have never been so relevant. Susannah Drake, the Principal of dlandstudio, will discuss how landscape architecture and good environmental design can create new infrastructure systems that will result in more resilient cities and improved biodiversity. Drake will also argue how data visualization can improve understanding about the financial incentives of good environmental design, and help untangle the bureaucratic web surrounding complex jurisdictional environments.” Video Description Excerpt

2013 A.E. Bye Landscape Architecture Archives Research Fellow announced

The winner of the A.E Bye Research Fellowship competition has been announced; A.E. Bye Landscape Architecture Archives Research Fellow 2013 will be awarded to Richard L. Hindle, landscape architect. The review committee reported, “… Richard Hindle’s proposal was the most outstanding. Hindle’s plan to study Bye’s approach to plants–from his inspiration by Roberto Burle-Marx, to his adaptations of native plants of the NE U.S. for design-–would yield results of great interest to students and practitioners of landscape architecture.”

The Fellowship provides a $2,500 stipend for a minimum of one week of archival research in the Eberly Family Special Collections Library at Penn State’s University Park campus in State College, Pennsylvania. The records include drawings, papers, photographs, and videos of the celebrated twentieth-century American landscape architect A. E.
