Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates (MVVA) has over twenty years experience designing building and restoring landscapes for a broad range of public, private, and corporate clients. Their approach to landscape architecture entails working closely with the site itself: the complex, existing, multi-layered place that has been shaped through an entire history of natural and cultural processes. MVVA embraces the dynamic nature of a living landscape whether designing for a small garden or a large urban park. In this lecture Mr. Lovinger will introduce the design processes of some of their major projects.
