Mark Klopfer + Kaki Martin Eponymous Practice Like ne ver before, the technologically de minimus globe on which we live enables broader geographical reach for all types of practitioners, but perhaps, most particu- larly for small firms. This lecture con sidered the 5 year practice of the Klopfer Martin Design Group based in Cambridge, MA, to learn about three projects at three scales on three continents and how its partners reject the idea of “firm profiling” in defining their practice. Mark Klopfer is a LEED ac credited, registered landscape architect and architect with seventeen years in practice. His experienc e is ba sed in public building and park design, institutiona l and open spa ce planning and on-structure landscapes. Kaki Martin is a designer with thirteen years of practice experience. Her work is ba sed in public park design in mostly urban condition s, institutional and open spac e planning and river edge landscapes. Klopfer Martin Design Group: klopfermartin.com Martha Schwartz The Softer Side of Sustainability Martha Schwartz is a landscape architect a nd artist with major interests in cities and the urban landscape. She presented her work that spans from site-spe cific art installation s to working with cities at strategic planning level s. Her focus is on environmenta l sus ta inability and the creation of awareness about how the urba n landscape underwrites urba n susta inability through functioning as the platform for a city’s environmental, social and economic health. Schwa rtz is an advoc ate for how cities can help to reduc e climate change and support a more sustain- able approach to diminishing resource s. Schwartz continues her devotion to the built environment through pushing new boundar- ies and expressions as a designer. She understa nds de sign as a method through which to cre ate s ocial buy-in a nd the creation of value for public spaces. She believes that design creates identit y, sense of place and helps to differentiate ourselves in an ever-growing uniformity of place as a re sult of globalization. Martha Schwartz Partners: marthaschwartz .com Design-at-large is not about technique, style, decoration or even innovation but existence at large... to live an interesting life which may, in turn, lead to interesting architecture.
