"Horticulture and landscape design flourish in tandem at Hoerr Schaudt Landscape Architects, one of the most dynamic firms in Chicago today. In Movement and Meaning, this landscape architecture firm reveals how they embed plant material into their projects, embracing biological changes wrought by time. Readers will come away with an understanding of both the art and the science that goes into creating a rich experience through innovative landscape architecture techniques. Over the past twenty years, the principals of Hoerr Schaudt Landscape Architects have been acknowledged innovators in landscape architecture, and the firm has won numerous awards for its urban public spaces, academic campuses, green roofs, commercial developments, cultural institutions, and recreational destinations. The firm's long focus on innovative horticulture and particular attention to seasonality put it at the forefront of this now-popular industry-wide focus. Movement and Meaning explores forty-five public, private, and cultural projects, revealing Hoerr Schaudt's talent for creating meaningful, ever-evolving designs. In-depth features include projects for which the firm has gained recognition, including McGovern Centennial Gardens in Houston; Daley Plaza in Chicago; the Greater Des Moines Botanical Garden; Soldier Field and North Burnham Park in Chicago; the Buckhead shopping district in Atlanta; the University of Chicago's main quadrangle and Botany Pond; and innovative rooftop gardens for the Gary Comer Youth Center and the Morningstar Corporation in Chicago. The firm has also completed dozens of private estate gardens throughout the Midwest, including in Chicago proper; Lake Forest, Peoria, and Winnetka, Illinois; Grand Rapids and Harbor Springs, Michigan; and Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. They have also designed gardens in other climates, including Palm Springs, California; Rhode Island; and Antigua. Hoerr Schaudt's seasonal, plant-driven designs are sure to inspire landscape architects and home gardeners alike"
