Peter Walker has exerted a significant impact on the field of landscape architecture over a four-decade career. The scope of Mr. Walker’s landscape projects is expansive and varied. It ranges from small gardens to new cities, corporate headquarters and academic campuses to urban plazas. Whether in urban or rural environments, his designs shape the landscape in a variety of stylistic and cultural inflections, always putting clarity and modernity of vision in the service of specific site requirements.
Mr. Walker designed the landscapes at the Federal Triangle in Washington, D.C. (with I.M. Pei Architects); in Disney City in Orlando, Florida; at the Sony Center Berlin (with Murphy/Jahn Architects); and at the Toyota Municipal Museum of Art in Toyota City, Japan. He also designed the Tanner Fountain at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and the Library Walk at the University of California at San Diego.
Mr. Walker has also taught for more than 40 years and has served as chairman of the Landscape Architecture Department at the Harvard Graduate School of Design and at the University of California at Berkeley.
