Lewis J. Clarke Landscape Architecture Lecture: Sara Zewde

October 16, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm


Join the Department of Landscape Architecture for the Lewis J. Clarke Lecture featuring Sara Zewde of Studio Zewde on October 16 at 6 PM in Burns Auditorium.

In the context of rapid urban development, a changing climate, and clarified political tensions, the narratives embedded in ecologies of memory offer creative departures for landscape architecture today. Sara Zewde will discuss recent design work in Philadelphia, Seattle, Houston, and Brazil.

Sara Zewde is founding principal of Studio Zewde, a design firm practicing at the intersection of landscape architecture, urbanism, and public art. The studio is devoted to exploring the “aesthetics of being” and creating enduring places where people belong. Sara holds a master’s of landscape architecture from the Harvard University Graduate School of Design, a master’s of city planning from MIT, and a BA in sociology and statistics from Boston University. Sara was named the 2014 National Olmsted Scholar by the Landscape Architecture Foundation, a 2016 Artist-in-Residence at the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation, and in 2018, was named to the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s inaugural “40 Under 40: People Saving Places” list. Her work has been exhibited at the 2016 and 2018 Venice Architecture Biennale, in the Brazilian and U.S national pavilions.
