We are thrilled to announce that our Partner and Director of Research Skip Graffam is one of 31 distinguished professionals elevated this year to the American Society of Landscape Architects' Council of Fellows. Skip’s global award-winning work balances the unique needs of each site, the people who will use it, and the environment as a whole. He fosters the integration of input from communities, governments, designers, engineers, scientists, and other collaborators to create enduring public spaces that ignite social engagement and enliven living and cultural systems.
The renovation of Hill College House at the University of Pennsylvania, originally designed by Eero Saarinen and Dan Kiley, has earned the Award of Excellence from Docomomo US's Modernism in America Awards. The program recognizes "outstanding projects showcase the highest level of expertise and commitment to careful preservation methods while serving as strong testaments to the efficacy of grassroots efforts, and public and private partnerships." OLIN was the lead landscape architect on the renovation, which included both the exterior campus landscape and interior plantings, in collaboration with lead project architect Mills + Schnoering Architects and a diverse, multi-disciplinary team.
