Modern Landscape Architecture: Transition and Transformation

free

The Toby

During the period following World War II, a great surge of collective energies — the Modern movement — redefined traditional values, beliefs and artistic forms. Unfortunately, reasoned criticism did not follow, and, until recently, Modern landscapes slipped beyond even the peripheral vision of art historians. From America's first "park plaza" in Minneapolis to Dan Kiley's revolutionary design for the Miller Garden in Columbus, we must have a commitment to preserving and interpreting Modernist landscape architecture. In this program, Charles A. Birnbaum, president of the Cultural Landscape Foundation, offers recommendations and strategies to preserve these often "invisible" public and private places that represent a significant chapter in our nation's evolution.
