A/L/I Lecture by Katherine Spitz

Landscape Architect and Architect

Architecture/Landscape/Interiors' annual lecture series consists of three lectures by architects, designers and/or critics working in one, each, of the department's three fields, plus another lecture by an internationally based practitioner.

Landscape Architect and Architect, Katherine Spitz, spoke on October 20, 2011. As Principal of Katherine Spitz Associates, Inc., Katherine participates in all stages of project development, from design through project management and construction administration. Trained as a painter and licensed as an Architect, Landscape Architect, and LEED AP, she brings a strong sense of rigor combined with creative aesthetics to each project. Katherine is particularly interested in applying the experiential qualities of landscape to the civic realm. Her background and experience in the fine arts and horticulture is extensive, allowing her to develop landscape designs that are truly interdisciplinary. Katherine's involvement with landscape design and horticulture began in 1974, working with the Barnitz Nursery in Santa Barbara and for the United States Forest Service in the Los Padres National Forest. From this involvement, she developed an appreciation for the exotic plant materials of the horticultural world and for the native drought-tolerant plants of Southern California.
