YOU ARE CORDIALLY INVITED TO OUR NEXT FORUM LECTURE THIS MONDAY NOVEMBER 25, AT THE NATIONAL GALLERY OF CANADA — 6 pm
One of the world’s top landscape architects, Vladimir Djurovic, will lecture in Ottawa this Monday.
Of Montenegrin descent and born in Lebanon, Mr. Djurovic received his Undergraduate Degree in Horticulture from Reading University in England and his Masters Degree in Landscape Architecture from the University of Georgia. After working in the U.S. for several years, he returned to Lebanon to establish his landscape architectural practice in 1995.
Vladimir Djurovic Landscape Architecture (VLDA) is located in the town of Broumana, Lebanon. Despite its small size, the firm has completed projects on every content and won numerous awards. Djurovic’s designs are marked by a tremendous sensibility to context and creative attention to present-day global challenges. As one example, his 17-acre Aga Khan Park sited between Toronto’s Aga Khan Museum and the Ismaili Centre, and designed in partnership with Moriyama & Teshima Planners, reconciles contemporary sensibilities with inspiration from ancient gardens and landscapes.
The stunning and serene park was awarded the Silver and Bronze prizes in the categories of “public” and “gardens” by the American Architecture Prize in 2016.
In keeping with this year’s theme of Cities and Landscapes in Common, Vladimir Djurovic has titled his lecture No Separation.
We hope to see you on Monday!
Presented in partnership with the Ontario Association of Landscape Architects
