Speaking Engagement

MorrisTerra Principal, Todd McCurdy, FASLA, was invited to join a distinguished panel of local Landscape Architects to share his insight on the current state of the profession, the ever-evolving role and value of Landscape Architects on project teams, and work prospects at home and abroad. The panel was organized and hosted by the Orlando Section of the Florida Chapter of ASLA and moderated by Florida Chapter President and MorrisTerra Associate Principal Kenn Bates.

MorrisTerra Published

MorrisTerra was published in the August 2011 issue of the prestigious Landscape Architecture Magazine.
An article by Ernest Beck called “Outside looking in - For many firms, working abroad is no longer and ‘if’, but many still wonder what in the world they’re doing.”
The article is a strong and comprehensive treatise on working abroad, with quotes and commentary from many firms doing work abroad, including MorrisTerra. For the story, the author interviewed Todd McCurdy, FASLA and others about their experiences working in other countries, including the challenges, and the benefits.

Thornton Park Central, the first modern “New Urban” mixed use project built in Downtown Orlando, is a true trendsetting project that has become an Orlando icon and the catalyst for an urban transformation of the Thornton Park and Eola South neighborhoods. The Landscape Architect’s broad vision and approach fostered the creation of a memorable, lively, urban pedestrian environment with a strong sense of place, that is first and foremost, a place for people.

Marina da Glória is the key northern anchor to Landscape Architect Roberto Burle Marx’ famous Parque do Flamengo in Rio de Janeiro, Brasil. At the core of the solution is the creation of a place for people along the Rio waterfront respectful of Burle Marx’ iconic spiral marina. The concept unifies all design elements into a harmonious and elegant solution inspired by the works of the Brasilian Master and the unique landforms of Guanabara Bay.
