Thoughts on the Contributions of Architect David Hocker
American Society of Landscape Architects Awards Two National
ASLA Honor Awards to David Hocker
David Hocker received two of the only twelve American Society of Landscape Architects national Honor Awards presented in 2010.
In both of the nationally recognized projects, the landscape for the Power House close to the Katy Trail and the landscape for the Pool House in Highland Park, one sees the integration of the site, architecture, materials, and texture of nature.
Strong Architectural Lines Are Gently Eroded by Soft Native Texas Plantings
The White Rock Lake house on four acres is a great example of incorporating native Texas plants and wildflowers to accentuate the long vistas to White Rock Lake and soften the strong edge of the 1930s lake home.
Classical Landscape, Influences of Italy in Architectural Training in Texas
David Hocker received his landscape architecture degree from Texas A&M University, trained with Naud Burnett, and remains strongly influenced by his study in Italy and the time he spends in and around Tuscany as his wife is from Lucignano.
You can see the classical influence of Italy, softened by the agricultural gardens of Tuscany, reinterpreted with the plant life and aesthetics of Texas.
Site Specific Landscape Design
You can see from the many examples of David Hocker’s work, including residential gardens, parks, and urban designs, that he emphasizes in the process of creating a landscape plan that accentuates the site, architectural structure, and his clients’ aesthetics.
