profound influence on countless landscape architects and designers. His former students from
the state Universities of Wisconsin and Georgia, to Columbia University have fanned out across
the country to multiply that influence. He has also designed some of America’s most notable
ecology-based projects including at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Research Center in
Austin, Texas, The Brooklyn Botanic Gardens, and the now iconic grasslands at The Storm King
Art Center in New Windsor, NY.
