One of the best known landscape architects practicing today, Laurie Olin is founding partner of OLIN, recipient of the 2008 Smithsonian’s Cooper-Hewitt National Design Award for excellence and innovation. In 2012, President Obama awarded him the National Medal of Arts. Recent projects include the new Barnes Foundation in Philadelphia and Director Park, a active and versatile urban plaza in the heart of Portland, Oregon. Olin has taught at the University of Pennsylvania for 40 years and is the author of many books and essays.

Landscape Lectures begin at 7 pm in Calderwood Hall. Lectures include Museum admission and require a ticket; tickets can be reserved online, in person at the door, or by phone: 617 278 5156. Museum admission: adults $15, seniors $12, students $5, free for members.

When a lecture sells out, the Museum will offer a limited number of obstructed view seats the night of the event via a sign-up list at the Admissions desk. The sign-up sheet will become available at the Admissions desk at 6 pm. We will make every attempt to seat everyone but cannot guarantee a seat once we are at capacity. Seats will be assigned 5 minutes prior to the lecture time. These obstructed view seats will be free of charge.
