Design Talks | Landscape Architect Margie Ruddick & Design Patron Janette Sadik-Khan

2013 National Design Award winner Margie Ruddick is recognized for her pioneering, environmental approach to urban landscape design, forging a design language that integrates ecology, urban planning, and culture. Ruddick fosters the idea of nature in the city through projects including New York’s Queens Plaza, and Trenton Capital Park on the Delaware River. Ruddick’s international work includes the Shillim Retreat in India and the Living Water Park, the first ecological park in China.

Janette Sadik-Khan, 2013 National Design Awards Design Patron and commissioner of the New York City Department of Transportation from 2007-2013, spearheaded the redesign of some of New York’s most iconic sites. From pedestrian plazas in Herald Square and Times Square, to the city’s Select Bus Service, the expansion of bike lanes, and the rollout of a bicycle-sharing program, Sadik-Khan’s initiatives have changed the way New Yorkers travel through and interact with their city.

Join Margie Ruddick and Janette Sadik-Khan as they discuss the reimagining of public space in today’s urban landscape.
