OvS Principal and CEO Lisa Delplace to Speak in Bergamo, Italy
This September Lisa Delplace, OvS Principal and CEO, will lecture at I Maestri del Paesaggi, International Meeting of the Landscape and Garden in Bergamo, Italy. The focus of the meeting of the most-well known landscape architects and garden designers is Wild Landscape, a theme that has resonated throughout Lisa’s career.
The two week program will include workshops, seminars and other events designed to engage landscape architect “insiders” in an effort to raise public awareness towards the field. Lisa’s talk will draw from more than 28 years of experience, fitting well with the program’s efforts to promote spontaneous landscapes that encourage interaction between humans and nature with environmental sensitivity. Throughout her career Lisa has designed landscapes are ecologically healthy, culturally sensitive, and economically viable.
The event organizers reference the work of OvS founders Wolfgang Oehme and James van Sweden who in the 1970 first presented herbaceous perennials and grasses in a new and naturalistic way, as a an inspiration for the Wild Landscape motif.
