The San Francisco Bay is the West Coast centre for contemporary garden design, boasting design icons such as Thomas Church, Lawrence Halprin and Garret Eckbo. Andrea Cochran has been practicing landscape architecture in the San Francisco Bay area for 30 years, continuing this creative tradition and inspiring new followers with her romantic modernist creations.

In the second annual UBC Continuing Studies Garden Design Lecture, Andrea discusses her most recent work, which includes a wide range of project types and scales, from single family residences to hotels, wineries, affordable housing, schools, institutions and public parks. She explains how she infuses a sense of intimacy and strong attention to detail into each project.

ANDREA COCHRAN’s landscape architecture firm is internationally recognized and has been featured in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and many design publications. It has earned numerous awards, including seven National ASLA Honor Awards. Andrea was named a finalist for the Smithsonian’s Cooper-Hewitt National Design Awards in Landscape Architecture in 2006, 2009 and 2010. A monograph of her work, Andrea Cochran: Landscapes, by Mary Myers, was published by Princeton Architectural Press in 2009.
