Happy Int'l Women's Day! (03/08/2022)



To recognize the feats and accomplishments women have fulfilled in the realm of landscape architetcure and regional planning, below are resources some of our faculty and student body has curated.

From Alexandra 'Ola' Smialek

  • Book:  The Death and Life of Great American Cities by Jane Jacobs (1961)
    • This book is an integral text in understanding urban planning theory and the way that planners and designers can look at cityscapes in different ways, oftentimes by shifting away from the more traditional concepts or practices of the past.


  • Several resources including webinars, newsletters, and community outreach initiatives are provided to both support and advocate for women in planning.

From Darrel Ramsey-Musolf

  • A lecture on the four waves of feminist history.




From Elizabeth Brabec

  • Oral History on Pamela Burton
    • Founding her firm shortly after graduation from the University of California, Los Angeles, Burton was influenced by Modernist and contemporary architects, artists, and landscape architects throughout her decades-long career


  • Oral History on Harriet Pattinson
    • In a career spanning more than 50 years, Pattison worked with leading 20th-century practitioners, including noted Modernist architect Louis Kahn and landscape architect George Patton, with whom she collaborated on the design for the iconic Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth, Texas.
