Emerging Voices 2014: Surfacedesign, Inc.

Geoff di Girolamo, James Lord, and Roderick Wyllie
Recorded: March 6, 2014

Geoff di Girolamo, James Lord, and Roderick Wyllie, principals of the San Francisco landscape architecture and urban design practice Surfacedesign, Inc., focus on creating landscapes that “connect people to their built environment” with an emphasis on “personal histories and connections between culture and natural environment.”

In 2014, The Architectural League named Surfacedesign, Inc. an Emerging Voice. The annual Emerging Voices award spotlights individuals and firms based in the United States, Canada, or Mexico with distinct design voices and the potential to influence the disciplines of architecture, landscape design, and urbanism. Each year, winners are invited to participate in the Emerging Voices lecture series.

In this video, di Girolamo, Lord, and Wyllie discuss current and recent projects, including the Museum of Steel in Monterey, Mexico; the Auckland International Airport Gateway in New Zealand; the IBM building in Honolulu, Hawaii; and the Lands End Visitors Center in San Francisco, California.
