Andrea Cochran. Landscapes
»Studies in repetition and order, orchestrations of movement in the landscape, and elements placed in geometric conversation,» is how author Mary Myers describes the twenty-five-year career of San Francisco-based landscape architect Andrea Cochran. Poetic language suits these functional and often lyrical works of art. They are sensuous, captivating oases that absorb the eye in a totality of spatial composition. Andrea Cochran: Landscapes presents eleven residential, commercial, and institutional landscape projects in detail, including Walden Studios in Alexander Valley, California the sculpture garden for the Portland Art Museum in Portland, Oregon and the award-winning Childrens Garden in San Francisco. Andrea Cochran seeks to put her clients individual narratives in conversation with the land. Her work is distinguished by its careful consideration of site, climate, and existing architecture.
