Seattle’s Gas Works Park and Bainbridge Island’s Bloedel Reserve. These two iconic Puget Sound spaces were designed by Richard Haag, landscape architect and Founder of the Department of Landscape Architecture at UW. His life’s work and its contribution to the field of architecture has been expertly chronicled by UW professor Thaisa Way in The Landscape Architecture of Richard Haag. For the book’s public launch, Way and Haag will sit down and offer a visual tour of the work he does, exploring the far-reaching influences of his work with ecologists, soil scientists, and how he kicked open the door for modern urban ecological design.
