To All The Girls I've Loved Before


It is a true atrocity that I have not showcased my affinity for Martha Schwartz until now. She greased my slide from Architecture to Landscape Architecture with her ersatz take on design. Schwartz first gained exposure when she engineered a formal garden using carbed-out bagels and purple, aquarium gravel in Boston's Back Bay. Eventually, she would be commissioned to design an installation to replace Richard Serra's controversial Tilted Arc in Manhattan's Federal Plaza. Her ability to think beyond the box and still nail the target is fantastic.
