Peter Walker is a landscape architect with over fifty years of experience in practice and teaching.  Advocating a landscape that responds to, as well as influences its environment, Walker has collaborated with architects of such stature as I. M. Pei, Arata Isozaki, Norman Foster, Renzo Piano, Yoshio Taniguchi, Ricardo Legorreta, and Helmut Jahn. Walker authored Invisible Gardens: The Search for Modernism in the American Landscape with Melanie Simo. His work has been included in several exhibitions in San Francisco and Tokyo, at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., and the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris. As part of his commitment to education and publishing, Walker founded Spacemaker Press; its Landmarks series won the ASLA’s President’s Award of Excellence in 2000, and its magazine Land Forum, the ASLA Award of Excellence in Communications in 2006.   Please join us on the 14th as he discusses how the past informed the present while working on the National September 11 Memorial.
