Roger Sherman introduces Laurie Hawkinson.
Hawkinson discusses the work of her practice Smith-Miller and Hawkinson and their conceptual approach. Hawkinson stresses her interest in creating links between the viewer and the object, integrating context and buildings in their architecture.
Hawkinson describes their masterplan for the North Carolina Museum of Art, produced in collaboration with artist Barbara Kruger and landscape architect Nicholas Quennell. The project consists of a large-scale art park in which the history of the site and the experience of space and the artworks is central.
Hawkinson discusses their L. A. Arts Park competition proposal that aimed to create a cultural park in the Sepulveda Flood Control Basin adjacent to the Los Angeles River.
