Ann Komara, associate professor and co-chair of Landscape Architecture, wrote an essay about landscape architect Satoru Nishita that has been published on The Cultural Landscape Foundation website about his life and work.

Nishita, who passed away on July 16, 2013, was the partner-in-charge and lead landscape architect for many notable projects in landscape architect and urban planner Lawrence Halprin’s office, including Skyline Park in Denver (1973) (pictured at left). He was also involved in the design of Babi Yar Park in Denver.
