Landscape architect Tim Duggan is named one of the top ‘game changers’ for 2012 in architecture magazine Metropolis.
Those on the list were chosen because their work demonstrates “the power of design to forge real change”, according to executive editor Martin C. Pedersen.
Tim was listed for his work with the Make It Right Foundation, founded by Brad Pitt to help rebuild New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. As well as creating an affordable, sustainable, and safe set of homes, Make It Right aims to reconceive the role of landscape architecture in post-disaster rebuilding.
Also in the Metropolis line-up were:
Peter Bilak, Slovak graphic designer and typographer
Mia Birk, president of Alta Planning and Design
Vishaan Chakrabarti, real estate developer, architect, city planner, and educator
John Edelman, president and CEO of Design Within Reach
Ruth Finkelstein, senior vice president for policy and planning of the New York Academy of Medicine
Rob Kalin, founder and former CEO of Etsy
Laura Kurgan and Sarah Williams, directors of Columbia’s Spatial Information Design Lab
