Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Charles Morris Anderson (born 1957) is a landscape architect and founder of Charles Anderson Landscape Architecture (CALA), a Seattle-based landscape architecture firm. Charles Anderson is known[by whom?] for combining nature, community needs, and art into his designs, emphasizing local and national sustainability. Born in 1957, Anderson was raised in Jamestown, North Dakota. It was there he acquired his passion for landscaping, his career beginning when he did landscape contracting during his high school years. Anderson shared similar ideas to other industry figures, some of whom became his mentors. Some of his mentors included Peter Walker, affiliated with the team involved in the World Trade Center Memorial project; Richard Haag, famous for his Gas Works Park project in Seattle; and Laurie Olin who, in the 1980s, served as the head chair of the landscape architecture program at Harvard University. Anderson also had special interest in the work of both Robert Smithson, an influential artist of the 1960s and 1970's, and James Turrell, a contemporary artist who focuses on light and space.show more
