He has fostered new ways of thinking about landscape architecture and ecological design. Mr. Haag is the only person to have twice received the prestigious American Society of Landscape Architects President’s Award for Design Excellence for his work at Seattle’s Gas Works Park and Bloedel Reserve on Bainbridge Island.

Images of nature shown during Beethoven Symphony No. 6 “Pastorale” are from Haag’s private collection of slides used in lectures over the past 50+ years.
