Gustafson is a partner in both Gustafson Guthrie Nichol in Seattle and Gustafson Porter in London. Her work incorporates the fundamental sculptural and sensual qualities that enhance the human experience of landscape. She is only the third landscape architect to have received the Arnold W. Brunner Memorial Prize in Architecture from the American Academy of Arts and Letters. Gustafson is also an Honorary Fellow of the Royal Institute of British Architects, and a medalist of the French Academy of Architecture. Along with her partners at Gustafson Guthrie Nichol, she received the National Design Award for Landscape Architecture from the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum.
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.
