Synopsis

'When walking, or perhaps more rarely when sauntering on horseback, one is in direct contact with surroundings, reifying a connection to natural rhythms. To forget the season, soil, and sky is to deny existence'. So writes renowned landscape architect Roger G. Courtenay in "My Kind of Countryside". Whether walking the Piedmont of Virginia, canoeing the French Broad River near Asheville, North Carolina, driving along the Blue Ridge Parkway, or exploring Thomas Jefferson's Academical Village, Courtenay turns to his local countryside for inspiration. In "My Kind of Countryside" Courtenay delves into the nuances of his craft, inviting us to share his encounters with a myriad of landscapes and revealing how he then interprets these experiences in his sketches.

Roger G. Courtenay is a principal and vice president of EDAW. His projects include the National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, D.C.; the U.S. Capitol Visitor Center; and the Mount Vernon Orientation Center, Education Center, and Museum.
