WHEN: Friday, Sept. 6, 5 p.m.

In his work as a landscape architect, Ken Smith focuses on creating public space in complex urban sites. He will give the School of Architecture’s Myles Thaler Memorial Lecture in Campbell Hall at 5 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 6. Smith’s talk, “Transgressive Landscapes,” will focus on the creation of landscapes, especially parks and other public spaces, that challenge the conceptions of boundaries between what is public and private, and natural and cultural.


The recipient of numerous awards, Smith has worked on a variety of national and international projects. His designs explore the symbolic content and expressive power of landscape as an art form.

Smith’s work includes the Village of Yorkville Park in Toronto, and The Glowing Topiary Garden Project, a 1998 temporary installation in Manhattan’s financial district. Current projects include a light rail project in San Francisco and streetscape projects in Harlem.


He received his Master of Landscape Architecture from Harvard’s Graduate School of Design.
