Landscape artist and architect Ken Smith will be the first lecturer in Colorado College's world-class Landscape and the Built Environment lecture series.

Smith's lecture, titled "Transgressive Landscapes," is a look at public spaces and how they can be designed to challenge preconceived boundaries between public and private.

Smith, a New Yorker and a graduate of Harvard's School of Design, has built his career on designing public areas like the Third Street light rail stop in San Francisco, the Village of Yorkville Park in Toronto, Malcolm X Plaza and the restoration of the Lever House in New York City. He was also in the running to be part of the redesign team for the World Trade Center site, but lost out to Daniel Liebskind.
