Lucinda’s recent prominent projects include the Carnegie Hall Rooftop in New York City and the Delaware River Waterfront Master Plan in Philadelphia. Lucinda also led an entry for the 2014 Presidio Gateway Competition in San Francisco. Under her leadership OLIN/LABS was formed. OLIN/LABS is focused on research-based, public interest design that positively impacts the people and environments of the 21st century with solutions that create a more just, humane and livable world. She co-authored the book OLIN: Placemaking, published by Monacelli Press, which features a selection of the OLIN's most celebrated landscape architecture, urban design and planning projects. The book includes a transcribed conversation focusing on the future of the landscape architecture profession. In 2008, OLIN received the Smithsonian's Cooper-Hewitt National Design Award for Landscape Design.
