Bill's Design Talks: Walter Hood


Walter Hood, a landscape architect, professor, and author, has been praised as a "community whisperer, creating spaces that have elements the residents want before they even know it." His inclusive and innovative designs transform overlooked sites like street corners and highway underpasses into vital gathering spaces. Hs approach puts community members at the center of the design process, instead of treating them as an afterthought.
