Landscape Architect Kate Orff named 2023 TIME 100 Influential People honoree
Historically, landscape architecture was concerned with the composition of private gardens, but Kate Orff is a landscape architect who’s never been hemmed in by garden walls—seeking instead to liberate landscape to do nothing less than repair our warming planet through design. — TIME
The SCAPE founder and Columbia GSAPP Urban Design Program Director joins an exclusive club of TIME Magazine’s ‘100 Influential People’ that includes David Adjaye, Bjarke Ingels, Wang Shu, Jeanne Gang, and Kengo Kuma. (HOK was also cited last year for the Terminal B project at LaGuardia Airport, which the magazine said sets “the gold standard for airport design.”)
Orff was previously included on Rolling Stone’s list of “25 People Shaping the Future in Tech, Science, Medicine, Activism and More” in 2017, the same year she was awarded the MacArthur “Genius” Grant fellowship in a first for landscape architects nationwide.
