1976 - 1996


The landscape architecture and urban design practice Hanna/Olin was founded in 1976 by Robert Hanna and Laurie Olin.

Both professors at the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Design, their iterative and thoughtful collaborations soon led to a thriving design studio with numerous award-winning projects. Key projects include the revitalization of Bryant Park in New York, the planning and design of Canary Wharf in London and the 16th Street Transitway Mall in Denver. Hanna left the firm in 1996, which then became known as Olin Partnership and now is known as OLIN.
