The construction and development of landscape architecture has been an important aspect of architecture and urbanism for a long time. Whether it’s better integrating buildings with nature, or the development of a more sustainable architecture, a diverse group of architects has contributed ideas and proposals to landscape architecture. Kathryn Gustafson was known for her work designing high quality parks. Lota de Macedo Soares was self-taught and an important advisor to the state, responsible for the coordination of the Flamengo Park in Rio de Janeiro. Meanwhile, Rosa Grena Kliass, who worked on several park projects in Brazil, developed relevant theoretical work and was the founder of the Brazilian Association of Landscape Architects.
