The Circle Gallery at the UGA College of Environment and Design will feature the work of four landscape architects, all of whom have ties to the college. Practice, Practice, Practice: Four Landscape Architects at Work will be on display Aug. 11-Sept. 30.
Former UGA professor Rob Fisher and alumni Chris Hite, Brent Lloyd and Anne Daigh are practicing designers. Their work ranges from residential design to large-scale parks and resorts to sustainable agriculture. In conjunction with the exhibit, a public reception will be held Aug. 18 from 4:30-6 p.m.
Sketches, plans and drawings will be on display as well as photographs that explore the creative process of landscape architecture, showing steps of inventory and analysis, design ideas, construction documents and photos of finished projects.
Hite of Dix/Hite + Partners lives in Florida where her firm designs large- and residential-scale work. She received her bachelor’s degree in landscape architecture from UGA in 1987.
Lloyd, who received his master’s degree in landscape architecture from UGA in 1999, is the managing principal of BrightView Design Group in Denver. He has expertise in mostly large-scale development, working throughout the U.S., China and the United Arab Emirates.
Fisher, who taught at the college in the 1970s, has almost 40 years of experience in ecology-based design. He is well known for his work in helping transform the Georgia Tech campus into one of the most “green” urban college campuses in the U.S. He also dedicates much of his time to assisting impoverished communities in Haiti.
Daigh of Nashville is in the first decade of establishing her own firm, which concentrates on residential design. She received her bachelor’s degree in landscape architecture from UGA in 2002.
