OJB founding partner James Burnett shares the threads that run through the firm's projects over the past 30 years. Noted for belief that landscape has the power to transform cities and strengthen communities, and commitment to addressing issues of access, equity, and health in their public spaces, OJB is the winner of the 2020 National Design Award for Landscape Architecture from the Cooper-Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum. Notable projects include Klyde Warren Park in Dallas, one of the first highway capping deck parks; the community-centric Levy Park in Houston; and the Sunnylands Center and Gardens in Rancho Mirage, California, a desert botanical garden. He will share some of the unseen drivers that mark the work, including innovative sustainability features and green infrastructure solutions.
