The Stuckeman Center for Design Computing (SCDC) invites all to attend a spring open house and flash symposium event from 1:00–5:30 p.m. on May 5, 2015.
On Tuesday, April 14, at 6:00 P.M., the Stuckeman School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture will host a panel discussion, exhibition opening, and reception. The event is free and open to the public.
The exhibit, titled "Learning from A.E. Bye and John Hejduk, Reseeing the Bye Wall House as Landscape," is co-curated by Thaisa Way, associate professor of landscape architecture at the University of Washington, and Ron Henderson, FASLA, professor of landscape architecture and Asian studies at Penn State.
The folding sketchbooks, Sakura Orihon, completed by Ron Henderson, FASLA, during his 2012 US–Japan Friendship Commission Creative Artist Fellowship have been published in the April 2015 edition of Landscape Architecture Magazine. The article, "Peak Blossom," was written by the Japanese landscape architect, Toru Mitani. Landscape Architecture Magazine is the publication of the American Institute of Architects and is the most widely circulated global periodical in landscape architecture.
Landscape architecture professor Tim Baird’s Philadelphia-centered “Urban Arboreta: Tree Nurseries Transform Vacant Lands” has been selected as one of the 32 winning proposals of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation’s Knight Cities Challenge. Baird shares this victory with collaborator Penn State alumnus Matt Langan (BLA ’06) of Sasaki Associates in Watertown, Massachusetts.
