1:30 - 2:30 PM Keynote: Artful Stormwater Design- Shu-Fang Liu, M.L.A., Associate, OLIN
Stormwater management does not have to be an engineering nightmare, but can be transformed into a beautiful amenity through landscape design. Shu-Fang Liu will share her experiences working in sustainable and stormwater design, including designs of Washington Canal Park and other assorted projects throughout her thirteen year international landscape architecture career.
Shu-Fang Liu (Sophie Liu) joined OLIN between 2004 and 2013 and has more than thirteen years of international landscape architecture experience. She has worked on numerous projects ranging from park designs such as Washington Canal Park in Washington, DC to the developments of prominent university campuses, such as Duke University’s Nicholas School for the Environment and Earth Sciences in Durham, North Carolina, and Harvard University’s Allston Campus Initiative in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
Shu-Fang earned a Bachelor of Science in Horticulture at National Taiwan University and a Master of Landscape Architecture at Cornell University. During her academic experience she received honorable recognitions in arts and painting, including an Individual Grant in Painting from Cornell University. Shu-Fang’s artwork has been featured in several galleries across the country, including The Allen Sheppard Gallery in New York and the Arkansas Arts Center Museum in Little Rock, Arkansas.
In order to promote sustainable design around the world, Shu-Fang decided to attend Wharton for an MBA from 2011 to 2013. She is currently a consultant and looking for opportunities to make a significant impact in sustainable design.
