The St. Louis Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects will be presenting "Women in the Dirt" as part of Gateway, a film series exploring the human effect on our physical, cultural, and social environments. After the screening, join us for a brief conversation on the importance of the film as it relates to Landscape Architecture, Planning, Design, & Accessible Open Space.
Film: Women in the Dirt
Landscape frames our days: trees or flowers, sidewalks and walls, city parks or private gardens. But who envisions this framework for our daily lives? Women in the Dirt is a documentary about seven groundbreaking landscape architects. Their work ranges from intimate, jewel-like gardens to vast urban projects. Artists and scientists, the women bring to their work awareness of sustainability, function, and beauty. Women in the Dirt reveals how these self-described, masters of the obvious create the sublime.
