Janice Parker, RLA, ASLA

What is our cultural landscape? Why is it so important to protect the vision of historical public and private spaces? Throughout her career, Parker has had the honor of working on gardens by Ellen Biddle Shipman, Annette Hoyt Flanders and Rose Standish Nichols. She takes true inspiration from the long line of creative, hardworking American female landscape architects that preceded her. This lecture explores the importance of preserving our public and private cultural heritage as Parker walks the audience through the process of restoring an Ellen Biddle Shipman garden located in Fairfield County, Connecticut.

Award-winning landscape architect Janice Parker has dedicated her creative life to the pursuit of craft, quality, innovation and art. Originally from New York City she has always been drawn to the natural world. “I knew every tree on my street and to this day my favorite landscapes are along the Hudson River. My very first memory is of a flower.” Her work has been heavily influenced by the classical teachings of her artist peers. Since creating Janice Parker Landscape Architects in 1984, Janice has cultivated the firm to one of national prominence. Under her guidance, the firm has been honored with multiple awards including 6 Innovation in Design Awards for Garden Design from Cottages & Gardens, the 2017 Stars of Design Award for Landscape Design, 2017 Induction into the New England Design Hall of Fame, the 2016 ICAA Stanford White Award for Landscape Design, the 2015 Professional Merit Award from the American Society of Landscape Architects, and the 2012 National Palladio Award for Landscape Architecture. As an active member of the New York Restoration Project Chairman’s Council, as well as The Cultural Landscape Foundation Stewardship Council her notable career has embodied the essence of stewardship through education. To that end Janice actively mentors, lectures and volunteers. She has taught at the New York Botanical Gardens and New York Horticultural Society and gives lectures in universities and cultural centers, including The Parrish Art Museum, Boscobel House and Gardens, Rutgers University and The Bruce Museum.
