A cocktail reception will take place at 5:00 pm. James Corner’s new book, The Landscape Imagination: Collected Essays of James Corner 1990-2010 will be available to purchase at the event.

Commissioned to redesign Navy Pier for its 100th anniversary in 2016, Corner combines landscape architecture, urban design, landscape ecology and engineering to create innovative solutions for modern day cities, landscapes and social places. The British-born architect’s award-winning and visionary designs, such as the High Line in Manhattan and FreshKills Park on Staten Island, have transformed city districts and post-industrial sites into vibrant urban destinations.
