Laurie Olin, Landscape Architect & Recent Recipient of the Prestigious National Medal of Art, to Speak at ASLA 2013 Annual Meeting on November 8

The Hawaii Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) is pleased to announce its 2013 Annual Meeting, to be held on Friday, November 8, 2013 at the historic Pacific Club (1451 Queen Emma St., Honolulu).

 This year’s featured speaker is one of our profession’s most respected practitioners, educators and leaders: Laurie Olin, FASLA. President Obama recently presented Laurie Olin with the prestigious National Medal of Arts, awarded by the National Endowment for the Arts. This medal is the highest honor given to artists by the US Government. Mr. Olin is only the fourth landscape architect to receive the award. Other recipients include Lawrence Halprin, Dan Kiley and Ian McHarg.

The White House describes Laurie Olin as a “preeminent landscape architect,” who is “renowned for his acute sense of harmony and balance between nature and design.” It goes on to say he has “dedicated his energy to shaping many iconic spaces around the world and to educating new leaders in his art.” Indeed. His volume of work includes the Washington Monument, National Gallery of Art Sculpture Garden, J. Paul Getty Center, Columbus Circle, Bryant Park, and Battery Park, just to name a few.
