Join Klai Juba Wald and the UNLV School of Architecture for the next Klai Juba Wald Spring 2019 Lecture Series event on Monday, April 1 at 5:30 p.m. in the Architecture Studies Library with special guest speaker Gina Ford, a landscape architect, and co-founder and principal of Agency Landscape + Planning.
Ford’s work encompasses a wide range of scales and project types, from public parks and plazas to large-scale landscape planning and waterfront projects. She brings to each project a passion for the process of making vibrant landscape spaces—from the conceptual design to the details of implementation—with a particular focus on the life and use of urban, public environments. Gina led the design of the Chicago Riverwalk, Boston’s Lawn on D, Council Bluff’s Tom Hanafan Rivers Edge Park and Raleigh’s Moore Square and strategic planning efforts including the Cedar Rapids Flood Recovery Planning, the Rebuild by Design Competition and the Changing Course Competition while a principal with Sasaki.
Her work has received awards from the American Society of Landscape Architects, the American Planning Association and the American Institute of Architects, among others. She is on the board of directors for the Cultural Landscape Foundation and was the recipient of the Harvard Graduate School of Design’s Charles Eliot Travelling Fellowship and Wellesley College’s Shaw Fellowship. Agency Landscape + Planning is the recipient of the 2018 Irwin J. And Xenia S. Miller Prize.
