Dallas Architecture Forum presents Andrea Cochran
The Dallas Architecture Forum will continue its 2017-2018 lecture season with award-winning landscape architect Andrea Cochran, Principal of Andrea Cochran Landscape Architecture in San Francisco.
Cochran, FASLA, graduated from Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design and worked on the East Coast and in Europe before moving to California, where she has been practicing landscape architecture for the past 30 years. Cochran’s firm, established in 1998, tackles a wide range of project types and scales, from single-family residences to hotels, wineries, affordable housing, schools, institutions, and public parks.
Known for seamlessly interweaving sustainable landscapes, art, and architecture, the studio’s designs highlight the experiential qualities of the built environment. This holistic approach is most recently embodied in the design for Windhover Contemplative Center, which simultaneously functions as an art gallery, spiritual sanctuary, and contemplative garden on the Stanford University campus. The project received one of this year’s honor awards in general design from the American Society of Landscape Architects.
