Andrea Cochran will discuss how she shapes space as a landscape architect in both small gardens and larger landscapes: spare geometry applied to vibrant plant life results in sharp compositional order, yielding landscapes that convey a heightened sense of texture, light, and movement.

Cochran has been practicing landscape architecture in the San Francisco Bay area for more than 25 years. She graduated from Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design and worked on the East Coast and in Europe before moving to California in 1981. After working in collaborative partnerships for more than 10 years, she established Andrea Cochran Landscape Architecture in 1998, known for seamlessly integrating landscape, art, and architecture. Her work is distinguished by its careful attention to site, climate, and the choreography of experience.
