    Working between disciplines and pushing the boundaries of design is becoming more crucial as environments and project sites face more complex issues and conditions. Starting your own practice can be challenging, narratives surround the role of what is landscape architecture is continuing to evolve. Recent project work and research will be presented, questioning issues of discipline, design, technology, ecology, materiality and education.

    Jennifer Birkeland is a founding partner at op – Architecture Landscape in Brooklyn New York; and an Assistant Professor of Landscape Architecture at Cornell University in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. She is a licensed landscape architect in the state of New York, a LEED accredited professional and a Fellow of the American Academy in Rome. Jennifer received her Master of Landscape Architecture at Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design and has a Bachelor’s of Science in Landscape Architecture from California Polytechnic State University Pomona.

    Her practice approaches design problems by exploring the oppositions established by the vantage points of the two disciplines of focus, landscape architecture and architecture, developing design solutions that strive to disintegrate the subject-object relationship conventionally established between Landscape + Building. Prior to starting her own practice, Jennifer worked on a wide range of projects with the internationally renowned offices of West 8, OLIN, and Ken Smith Workshop.

    This lecture is part of the Kent State University CAED Lecture series and is a free public event to be held at the Cleveland Urban Design Collaborative Gallery. 

    CEU credits (1.5) are available to OCASLA members.
