Rose Auditorium
41 Cooper Square

Internationally known landscape and urban designer Diana Balmori will speak in the Rose Auditorium at The Cooper Union about her stunning new book, A Landscape Manifesto. Balmori's theory and practice of urban landscape design is an art that spans the divide between culture and nature, and combines the science of ecology with the formal aspects of aesthetics. During her talk, she will delve deep into the visionary thinking behind a variety of projects by Balmori Associates—including public spaces on the Memphis Riverfront and in the newly reclaimed port area by the Guggenheim in Bilbao, Spain.

Diana Balmori is an internationally recognized landscape and urban designer. She teaches at the Yale University School of Architecture and the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies. Balmori also serves as a senior fellow in Garden and Landscape Studies at Dumbarton Oaks Research Library and on the U.S. Commission of Fine Arts, both in Washington, DC. She lives and works in New York City.
