A Fresh Look at an Iconic Landscape - The Franklin D. Murphy Sculpture Garden at UCLA

UCLA's Franklin D. Murphy Sculpture Garden will be a focus of The Cultural Landscape Foundation's What's Out There Weekend (November 8-9), featuring the long and fruitful career of Los Angeles landscape architect, Ralph Dalton Cornell.  


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.
