DECEMBER LAM: ALONG THE EDGE
December 1, 2021 by LAM staff
Foreign territory (spirits)
Julie Bargmann, the first winner of the Cornelia Hahn Oberlander
International Landscape Architecture Award, flourishes in dirt.
The Wright Way (home call)
Was Frank Lloyd Wright a landscaper? For Bayer Landscape Architecture, the company that restored the garden at Darwin Martin House in Buffalo, New York, the answer lies somewhere
between the archives and the modern house-museum.
It has been a fishing pier, a railroad pier, a contested segregation site, even an inverted structure reminiscent of a cake left in the rain. But after six tries and 130 years, St. Petersburg, Florida’s dazzling new pier and park, by a team including W Architecture and Landscape Architecture, Ken Smith Workshop, and Rogers Partners Architects + Urban Designers, could be a keeper.
The full December table of contents is available here.
