•4/8 Lecture Series: Mark W. Johnson, FASLA - 6 p.m. Reception, 7 p.m. Lecture. San Diego Central Library, Mary Hollis Clark room (next to gift shop).

Mark Johnson is a founding partner of Civitas, Inc. of Denver. In 30 years of leading the firm he has played a strong role in many projects leading to the successful regeneration of inner city, brownfield and industrial areas. Foremost among these is his leadership of the planning and design of the regeneration of the Stapleton International Airport in Denver. He has led the process for defining the design vision, master plan, governance and plan implementation, which has led to a current population exceeding 12,000 residents on the former airport and almost 1,000 acres of new parks and open spaces.

Mark has achieved national recognition for leadership and design of complex urban park, plaza, waterfront and public space projects. In San Diego he has been lead designer for the North Embarcadero, Convention Center Expansion, Lane Field and Plaza de Panama projects. His current work includes the design of St. Patrick's Island Park in Calgary, Riverfront Park in Tampa, and Museum Park at the North Carolina Museum of Art in Raleigh.

Mark has won many awards for design, planning and service in his history of pushing the envelope of practice for landscape architects and urban designers. He is a frequent lecturer at universities, a regular panelist for ULI Forums, lecturer and faculty at the International Academy of Design and Health, Stockholm and core member of the Working Group on Sustainable Cities at Harvard.
