Diana Balmori founded Balmori Associates in 1990. The landscape and urban design practice is recognized internationally for designing sustainable infrastructures that serve as an interface between landscape and architecture. In 2006, she created BAL/LABs within Balmori Associates to further push the boundaries of architecture, art and engineering: Green Roofs, Floating Islands, Temporary Landscapes, Forms of Representation, and Zero Waste City, among others. She is the author of Drawing and Reinventing Landscape (A/D Wiley, 2014) and A Landscape Manifesto (Yale University Press, 2010). Since 1993, she has been a Critic at Yale University in both the School of Architecture and the School of Forestry and Environmental Studies.
