To mark our 25th year of showcasing innovative and much-honored landscape design professionals and their contributions to this ever-changing field, we invite three outstanding landscape architects from around the world— Richard Roark, Michelle Delk, and Sierra Bainbridge —to highlight their signature projects, working methods, and design philosophies.

With accreditations in LEED and Sustainable SITES, landscape architect Richard Roark is committed to creating ecologically-sound public landscapes. Among the several projects he will present are the American Embassy in London, the expansive 51-mile Los Angeles River Master Plan, Hunts Point in the Bronx, and the Infrastructure Plan for the communities of Caño Martín Peña in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Each of these sites, formerly contaminated or, as Roark says, "cast off" and "left behind," were renewed, becoming not only visually delighting, but also healthy. He is dedicated to invigorating the public realm, promoting social justice, and creating opportunities for all.
