Kinder Baumgardner, Robert Reich School of Landscape Architecture Design Week Lecture
January 27, 2016 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
Kinder Baumgardner, LSU alumnus and president of SWA, will lecture at the LSU Robert Reich School of Landscape Architecture at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, January 27, 2016, in the LSU Design Building Auditorium (room 103).
Baumgardner’s lecture is part of the Robert Reich School of Landscape Architecture’s annual Design Week (January 25-19, 2016), a weeklong design workshop for graduate and undergraduate students studying landscape architecture at LSU.
Baumgardner is also managing principal of the Houston studio of SWA. Over the span of 20 years, he has actively traveled the country seeking out regional flavors to create landscapes that are culturally and ecologically resonant. His collaborative mindset and awareness of the effect of historical and contemporary culture in creating experiential places is rooted in the design work he has performed in all corners of North America. His current work often finds him in the Middle East and Africa, where he is called upon to synthesize complex systems in order to create open spaces for new cities or urban precincts. While much of his work is internationally focused, he cherishes his projects in the U.S. and Texas, where inimitable regional American cultures and landscapes define who we are and how we live.
