The Zube lecture series is named for Ervin Zube, former head of LARP from 1974 to 1980. Professor Zube is internationally known for his leadership in developing a culture of academic research in the profession of landscape architecture. His research made numerous seminal contributions to landscape planning theory and practice. Ervin left UMass for the University of Arizona, where he continued his renowned research and teaching until he passed away in 2001.

Darrel Morrison, FASLA
Landscape Architect, Columbia University

Darrel Morrison, FASLA, is a long-time advocate of using native vegetation and natural processes in designing landscapes. He taught at the University of Wisconsin Department of Landscape Architecture from 1969 to 1983; then at the University of Georgia from 1983 to 2004, where he was also Dean of the School of Environment and Design from 1983 to 1992. He moved to New York in 2005, where he teaches part-time in Columbia University’s MS in Landscape Design degree program and continues to practice ecologically-based landscape design and management.

Recent work has included ongoing projects at Storm King Art Center; the Old Stone Mill Landscape at the New York Botanical Garden; and the native flora
garden extension at the Brooklyn Botanical Garden to include an eastern meadow and distillations of a pine barrens landscape, both upland and lowland.
