Landscape Seminar Series&Frictions Lecture Series

Teresa Moller (1958) is a Chilean landscape architect that has been working in the field for the past 35 years. She taught herself over the years working on a variety of projects of different scales. It has been mostly a self- training journey. She studied 2 years in Chile and 3 years at the New York Botanical Garden where she learnt the basic skills of hand drafting and designing skills. This basic training was the beginning of a life working within the landscape.
Some of her outstanding works are: Punta Pite (2005) and Periurbano Calama ́s Park (2016) in Chile, and international works in the Venice Biennale of Architecture (2016); Shanghai, China (2016); Cumelén, Argentina (2015); Corcega, France (2019) and in a permanent exhibition for IGA Berlin (2017).
Her publications and conferences include reflections around Ecological Landscape Design. “Reflections in the landscape”, her last book by Arquine Editorial written with Jimena Martignoni in 2021, talks about her observations, thoughts and ways of working with nature. The book is divided in 10 themes that bring some very simple ideas about: land, water, trees, fruits, stone, path, signs, essence, silence and human nature,
Her most important works have been published in the compilation book "Unveiling the landscape" in 2013, Hatje Kantz Editorial.
Recently she has been named to receive the World Award for Sustainable Architecture 2020, UNESCO, in Paris, for her contribution to sustainable development.

This event was supported by the Landscape Institute and by the Centre for Contemporary Latin American Studies.
