Each fall, the University of B.C. School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture invites a well-known professional to speak on the expanding field of international landscape design.  This year the Robson Square lecture hall was packed to hear renowned American landscape architect Kathryn Gustafson, and she did not disappoint.   As exemplified by her many brilliant projects around the world, Gustafson has pushed the boundaries of landscape architecture in many directions.  With offices in Seattle, Washington, D.C., and London, she has recently led her teams to design landscapes for the Smithsonian Museum of African-American History and Culture in Washington D.C., the Millennium Park in Chicago, and the Diana, Princes of Wales Memorial Fountain in London. Gustafson and her London partners are also leading landscape architects for the Paris 2024 Olympics.
