- Femmes Fatales: What is Pecha Kucha
Pecha Kucha is a Japanese invention that allows people to share ideas in the form of a six minute talk. The format is prescribed: 20 images shown for 20 seconds each. Lisa will be joining twenty designers at the A+D Museum for a fast paced evening featuring a variety of design disciplines. We want Lisa’s talk to be a surprise, so the only thing we’ll tell you now is that her talk will take you to Mexico City and Antigua, Guatemala!
- Lisa Leads Garden Tour at Midcentury Modern Gem
Lisa Gimmy, ASLA, worked closely with the owners of this mid-century modernist Los Feliz home, designed by Eugene Kinn Choy in 1952, to update the courtyard and the area around the pool for this active family with young children. Graceful steps now separate the outdoor dining terrace from the pool area and lanai; groupings of planters and a bench soften the edge between the pool and the tall retaining wall. Trailing rosemary at the top of the wall and colorful drought tolerant succulents are important components of the new plant palette. Join Lisa on Saturday, April 26, 2014, from 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. for a dialogue with the owners and gardener Sabine Hoppner of Waters Edge Gardening.

- 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. Pete’s talk, “Before the Memorial”, summarized his journey as an artist, beginning with studying and collecting work by minimalist artists such as Carl Andre. The Nasher Sculpture Center in downtown Dallas exemplifies Pete's skill in using flatness to great effect. For anyone who hasn’t seen the Nasher, put your Texas bias aside and book your ticket! (And, while you're in Texas, get down to Houston and see the Menil!) #911memorial, #andrelenotre, #carlandre, #landscapearchitecture, #nashersculpturegarden, #newyorklandscapearchitecture, #peterwalker, #vauxlevicomte
