    Educational Session #1

    Speaker | Charles Birnbaum, FASLA, FAAR, President, CEO, and Founder of The Cultural Landscape Foundation (TCLF)

    Charles A. Birnbaum, FASLA, FAAR, is the president, CEO, and founder of The Cultural Landscape Foundation (TCLF). Prior to creating TCLF, Birnbaum spent fifteen years as the coordinator of the National Park Service Historic Landscape Initiative (HLI) and a decade in private practice in New York City, with a focus on landscape preservation and urban design. One of his major projects is the Web-based initiative What’s Out There (a searchable database of the nation’s designed landscape heritage). He has authored and edited numerous publications, including Shaping the Postwar Landscape, (UVA Press, 2018), the Modern Landscapes: Transition and Transformation series (Princeton Architectural Press, Volumes printed in 2012 and 2014), Shaping the American Landscape (UVA Press, 2009), Design with Culture: Claiming America’s Landscape Heritage (UVA Press, 2005), Preserving Modern Landscape Architecture (1999) and its follow-up publication, Making Post-War Landscapes Visible (2004, both for Spacemaker Press), Pioneers of American Landscape Design (McGraw Hill 2000) and The Guidelines for the Treatment of Cultural Landscapes (National Park Service, 1996). In 1995, the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) awarded the HLI the President's Award of Excellence. In 1996, the ASLA inducted Birnbaum as a Fellow of the Society. He served as a Loeb Fellow at Harvard’s Graduate School of Design, during which time he founded TCLF. In 2004, Birnbaum was awarded the Rome Prize in Historic Preservation and Conservation and spent the springand summer of that year at the American Academy in Rome. In 2008, he was the Visiting Glimcher Distinguished Professor at Ohio State University's Austin E. Knowlton School of Architecture. That same year, the ASLA awarded him the Alfred B. LaGasse Medal, followed by the President’s Medal in 2009. In 2017, Birnbaum received the ASLA Medal, the Society's highest award. 

     

     Educational Session #2

    Speaker | Claude Cormier, FCSLA, ASLA, Principal Landscape Architect, Claude Cormier + Associés

    Claude Cormier received his bachelor’s degree in Agronomy at the University of Guelph in 1982, his BLA at the University of Toronto in 1986 and his Master’s in the History & Theory of Design at Harvard University in 1994. He has established an internationally recognized studio in Montreal that, since 1995, has been offering services in landscape architecture and urban design. His practice extends far beyond the conventional realm of traditional landscape architecture, forging bridges between urban design, public art, and architecture. Claude’s landscapes are likewise anything but conventional, celebrating the artificial instead of the natural, and surreptitiously seeding reality with the surreal. What distinguishes Claude’s work is not only its inventiveness – but its tenacious sense of vision for the power of design.

    His firm Claude Cormier et Associés has produced an iconic body of work that continues to gain recognition. The firm is the recipient of nearly 90 awards and has been privileged to work on major public and private works in Canada and the United States, with current projects in Houston, Mount Vernon and Chicago. The Harvard Graduate School of Design dedicated a retrospective exhibition of the firm entitled Erratics in 2010. Cormier was Knighted to the Ordre National du Québec in 2009, the province’s highest distinction for individuals who have contributed to the development and leadership of Quebec. In 2015, he was invited by Phaidon Press to be featured in a publication as one of the top 30 Landscape Architects practicing in the world. In the same year he was nominated as an honorific member of the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts. Cormier was awarded a medal in recognition of his exceptional career and contribution to Landscape Architecture by the Université de Montréal in 2017.
