About the Lecture:
Michael will present a broad range of the firm's work, emphasizing how successful projects result from understanding a site's intrinsic qualities, and through true collaborations among multi- disciplinary teams, including clients and others outside the design professions.
After receiving an A.S. in Plant & Soil Technology from the University of Maine, and a B.S. in Environmental Design from UMass, Amherst, Michael Boucher, FASLA, earned his MLA from Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design in 1985. A practitioner, lecturer, and studio critic, Michael is also actively engaged in the community, including advisory roles for the Portland Society for Architecture, Wolfe’s Neck Center for Agriculture and the Environment, and UMA’s undergraduate architecture program.
From the office he founded in 1994, Michael Boucher has led project teams in the planning and design of many landscapes for educational and other campuses, schools, parks, museums, places of worship, and private residential properties. Michael and his team apply a thoughtful and rigorous design process that translates across various climates, project scales, and architectural approaches. “We strive to create simple and restrained designs that exhibit a practical, timeless, and enduring quality.”
