For landscape architect and Practice Professor of Landscape Architecture Emeritus Laurie Olin, drawing is about making places. An exhibition of many of his original drawings run during 2018 at the Kroiz Gallery in Penn’s Architectural Archives. This exhibition gathered examples from seven decades of his work and explores the imaginative ways that he uses drawing to see and understand the world around him. Curiosity, observation and wonder inspire his graphic engagement and have filled the pages of his many sketchbooks and flowed out onto sheets and rolls of many sizes. “Drawing, Professor Olin remarked, “helps you see…what is good about the good…to discern what is really good, and to recognize the subtleties.”
