Kudos for Board Member Laurie Olin
The January 2014 issue of Landscape Architecture Magazine features the OLIN firm’s work in Philadelphia.
In the lead article, you can learn about the firm Laurie Olin founded forty years ago and its new generation of partners. Five additional articles highlight recent OLIN projects, including the restoration of the Benjamin Franklin Parkway – Philadelphia’s Champs-Elysées; the design, in collaboration with Todd Williams and Billie Tsien, of the landscape surrounding the relocated Barnes Foundation; the restoration of the grounds of the neoclassical Rodin Museum; the dramatization of the slope adjacent to the Philadelphia Museum of Art as part of a design for a new outdoor sculpture garden; and the reconfiguration of a Philadelphia transit hub into a pedestrian-friendly public space.
While no longer involved with the firm’s day-to-day operations, Olin’s international reputation keeps him in demand both at home and abroad. In the air, he writes; on the ground, he sketches, recording the various landscapes in which he finds himself. The Foundation for Landscape Studies is proud that he is a frequent Site/Lines contributor.
