Diana Balmori founded Balmori Associates, an urban and landscape design firm, in 1990. Joel Sanders is the founder of Joel Sanders, Architect. Both teach at Yale University.
"With Groundwork, [architect Joel Sanders] and the landscape architect Diana Balmori accomplish on paper what they'd like other designers to attempt in the world: a demonstration of the seamless unity of nature and culture that is demanded in an age of increasing environmental threat. The authors believe that green materials and technologies provide a common medium for interdisciplinary design approaches, just as glass and steel defined the inside/outside continuity of modernism. Much of the book is made up of their examples: from a Parisian house buried among 1,200 hydroponic ferns to a sculpture park built on a former brownfield along Seattle's waterfront to the authors' own design for an equestrian facility that morphs into a public park, which they proposed for New York's 2012 Olympics bid." --Julie Lasky, Designers & Books
