Join us on Wednesday, August 5 at 6pm to listen to this week’s Mind the Gap session with Signe Nielsen, Founding Partner at MNLA. She will talk about the forks in her bumpy road that led her to landscape architecture and how events and forces have shaped the lenses through which she sees the field and its future. Signe will be joined by staff members Rae Ishee, Cari Krol, and Jacob Kuhn who will each share observations on making tough choices and how landscape architecture has a broad embrace.
In the Mind the Gap virtual summer conversation series, Lucinda Sanders, CEO of OLIN and adjunct professor of landscape architecture at the Weitzman School at the University of Pennsylvania, talks with leaders of prominent landscape architecture practices, exploring multiple options to launch or advance a career in landscape architecture during these unprecedented times.
