Lecture: Mikyoung Kim of Mikyoung Kim Design

February 23, 2015
Fullerton Hall; entry at Michigan Avenue only

For the last 20 years, Mikyoung Kim of Mikyoung Kim Design has crafted an exceptional body of work, spanning a wide range of landscape typologies in Asia, the Middle East, and the U.S., including projects at the Chicago Botanic Garden, University of Chicago LAB School, and the Crown Sky Garden at the Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital. Kim has studied landscape architecture at Harvard’s Graduate School of Design and draws from a diverse educational background in sculpture, art history, and concert piano to develop a vibrant design aesthetic that blurs the boundaries between art, landscape, and performance.

At the end of Kim’s lecture, Maria Smithburg, Architecture & Design Society board member and founder of Artemisia Landscape Design, joins the designer in a discussion of her work.

This lecture is supported by Chicago Women in Architecture.

The Architecture & Design Society gratefully acknowledges the ongoing support of Park Hyatt Chicago.
