Galí-Izard is principal of Arquitectura Agronomia, a landscape architecture firm in Barcelona. Through her work, she explores new languages and forms, working with living materials, and applying contemporary dynamics and management. She has been involved in some of the most important landscape architecture projects in Europe, including the new urbanization of Passeig de Sant Joan in Barcelona and the restoration of the nearby Vall d’en Joan landfill, which won the European Prize for Urban Public Space in 2004. Galí-Izard is the author of The Same Landscapes: Ideas and Interpretation (2005), and co-edited Jacques Simon: Los otros paisajes, Ideas y reflexiones sobre el territorio (2012) with Daniella Collafranceschi.
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 signup sheet at the admissions desk. The signup sheet will become available at the 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.

The 2014-15 Landscape Lectures series is sponsored by an anonymous donor, in honor of Gary Koller, plantsman and garden designer. The Museum receives operating support from the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
