Architect Andrea Cochran to headline Neutra House speaker series

The Los Altos Town Crier reports that renowned landscape architect Andrea Cochran will headline the 2012-2013 Neutra House Architecture + Design Series.


Rooted in Northern California modernism, Cochran has practiced in the Bay Area for more than 30 years. Her San Francisco-based firm has a reputation for seamlessly integrating landscape, art and architecture.

Cochran’s approach to placemaking emphasizes the unique culture and climate of the region, using a restrained palette of materials to heighten the experience of the natural environment.

“This is an occasion to celebrate the legacy of modernism in California, and to talk about how we should build upon that legacy,” said Cochran of her Los Altos appearance. “It is important to think about how we can use sustainability to expand our definition of modernism in design practice today – whether as a designer or as a client.”
