|For the past 30 years, Pamela has informed the public of the importance of landscape design and stewardship of the land, mentoring through her lectures, publications, and her private practice, and providing designs for many civic, institutional, commercial, and residential projects. Pamela’s international speaking engagements have ranged from Australia to China, as well as here in the United States. She has written and spoken on such topics as “Garden as Sanctuary,” “Memory and Landscape,” “Balance and Uncertainty,” and “Poetics of the Garden.” In all of Pamela’s work, a rigorous overall structure encompasses spontaneity, randomness, and the unexpected. Sophisticated, elegant, subtle design concepts are used to convey references to mythology, history, and poetry. Emphasis is upon creating environments that are more than the sum of their individual parts—environments that satisfy clients through their functionality, beauty, and metaphorical resonance. The rigor of Pamela’s architectural training, her love and extensive knowledge of plant materials, and her understanding of the cultural and literary history of the natural environment have combined to sustain a demonstrably successful and vigorous worldwide practice that promotes the goals and ideals of our profession.
