Ron Henderson
L+A Landscape Architecture

L+A Landscape Architecture was founded in Providence, Rhode Island in 2000 and has offices located in Newport, RI and Beijing, Asia.

L+A designs site-specific ecologies and landscapes across the broad range of expertise offered by landscape architects: parks, plazas, greenways, campus, green roofs, and urban design. In addition, L+A has been active in municipal and federal policy, transportation planning, and landscape preservation.

While primarily a design practice, L+A is also deeply engaged in education and research. Ron is Professor of Landscape Architecture and Asian Studies at The Pennsylvania State University where he is also Chair in Integrative Design in the Stuckeman School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture.

Also Presenting:
O & G Studio

Jonathan Glatt and Sara Ossana are the founders of O&G Studio, in Warren, RI. Their handcrafted furniture fuses American-Windsor style design with bold, modern color palettes. Recently they were chosen as one of five international designers to create a custom piece for Tommy Hilfiger’s “True To The Blue” Capsule collection being displayed in multiple flagship stores throughout Europe.

They were recently named one of “Ten Contemporary Designers to Collect Today” by VOGUE magazine. They also received the “5 Under 40” award last year from New England Home Magazine. Jonathan and Sara met over ten years ago as Graduate students at RISD, where Jonathan studied jewelry and metals and Sara studied Interior Architecture.
