Architecture by Other Means


“It’s sort of what Clausewitz said about politics, “It was war by other means.”  It’s architecture by other means, so to speak.”

That’s one way Laurie Olin defines the practice of landscape architecture in this podcast, part of the National Endowment for the Arts‘ Art Works series. In this revealing interview, Laurie waxes on his childhood in Alaska, how he managed to study landscape architecture without knowing it, the profession’s role in the development of cities, iconic OLIN projects, and the moment he found out that he’d been selected to receive the National Medal of Arts.
