Innovators - a look back

 

Francoise-Helene Jourda
(1955-2015)
“I don’t know what my buildings will look like when I am working on them, I refuse to ask the question in stylistic terms."

A militant architect, she was one of the first to call for the integration of ecology 

 

 

in architecture, also one claiming that architects have a social responsibility to stand for. At a time when architecture is a lackey-service to real-estate companies and in the verge of becoming a secondary discipline..more

 

Peter Schaudt  
(1959- 2015)

"It is more important, in my opinion, to tell the story of what we do rather than worry about how we are categorized or named."

.

 

Peter was one of the most respected and celebrated landscape architects of his generation. He had earned a level of recognition and admiration that few achieve in their entire careers. He received the prestigious Rome Prize in 1990 and was made a Fellow of the American Society of Landscape Architects in 2006.  more planetizen
