Peter Walker's Gift

Peter Walker, FASLA, inaugurated USC’s annual School of Architecture lecture series with a presentation of “Reflecting Absence", the National 9/11 Memorial in downtown Manhattan. 


Lisa Gimmy Landscape Architecture is a professional consulting firm offering master planning, site planning, and landscape design. Since its founding in 1992, LGLA has designed landscapes for schools, campuses, boutique hotels, buildings, public parks, estates, and private residences. At LGLA each project is viewed as an opportunity to explore a series of relationships: between the site and the region, architecture and landscape, and most importantly, between the landscape and the people who will use and enjoy it.
