Join us for an evening with Lisa Delplace from the firm of Oehme, van Sweden

An Artful Approach: Inspirations for Shaping the Garden

Wednesday October 18, 2017

Oehme, van Sweden (OvS) is an award-winning practice of landscape architecture based in Washington, DC. The firm, a Women’s Business Enterprise and Certified Business Enterprise, has garnered world-wide recognition for pioneering a systemic approach to sustainable design. By integrating sustainability into each detail of a design, OvS creates landscapes that are ecologically healthy, culturally sensitive, and economically viable. The firm was recently awarded the American Society of Landscape Architects’ 2014 Landscape Architecture Firm Award. The award recognizes a “distinguished body of work that influences the professional practice of landscape architecture.”

The landscape architectural work of OvS continues to embody beauty and human connectivity while leveraging the highest standards of sustainability and ecological performance. Lisa Delplace will illustrate the firm’s design aesthetic, highlighting that no matter the size or application, the same design principles apply: effective use of positive and negative space, form and scale, light and shadow, and texture. The lecture will feature a series of built case studies that highlight how OvS uses design principles to establish a garden’s architectural foundation and to capitalize on seasonality and time.
