Image and text from the exhibition at the World Financial Center, An Installation of the Cycles of Landscape, February 21-March 5, 1989
"This is not a flower show. This installation explores landscape and nature in its various stages of development, presenting the dynamic process of change, rather than displaying plantlife at its peak, as the typical flower show does. Cycles of fading, wilting and dying are as integral to the design of a landscape as are budding, flowering and growing. The show visualizes beginnings and ends, perspectives of time, cycles of life and death that give measure to our world."
"New York-based architects Balmori often use unique means for their experimental projects. Their floating islands, green sculptures, and plenty of other intriguing surprises change up the cityscape and redefine urban planning."

The Gywnns Falls Trail Masterplan project is a response to community interest in restoring the Gywnns Falls Stream Ecosystem, which had been damaged over time by industrial pollution, illegal dumping, and neglect. The masterplan drew public attention to the stream and its watershed by outlining revitalization strategies, which included educational activities for area public schools and annual public celebrations.

"Performed by seven dancers and four musicians, Everywhere All the Time is an interdisciplinary performance work that includes choreography and direction by Seán Curran, a set and visual design by the late Diana Balmori, and musical direction and compositions by David Skidmore. A creative endeavor connecting dance, music, art, and architecture, the production is inspired by themes of tension and the interplay of harmony and discord in our natural world."
