Mia Lehrer, One of “6 Women Who Changed the Face of L.A. Architecture”

Los Angeles Magazine recently named USC Landscape Architecture faculty Mia Lehrer one of “6 Women Who Changed the Face of L.A. Architecture.”

 

“Lehrer may be the woman who most defines present- and future-day Los Angeles. The landscape architect has helped the city add to its relatively paltry stock of public space, with iconic, forward-thinking projects like the Annenberg Community Beach House, Vista Hermosa Park, and the Silver Lake Reservoir Pedestrian Path.”

Along with Kate Cullity, Lehrer will be participating in the first debate of the “Landscape as Necessity” series on October 9 at the Helms Design Center. Initiated by USC Landscape Architecture Director Kelly Shannon, the series includes four events this academic year. Each event includes two lectures from prominent landscape architects (one based in L.A., one from elsewhere) followed by a moderated debate on a theme that will change annually. This year’s theme is “Drought & Beauty.” Read more about the event here
