EVENT> Today: Second Wave of Modernism II: Landscape Complexity and Transformation

Friday, November 18, 2011

Today at the MoMA: The Second Wave of Modernism II: Landscape Complexity and Transformation includes three thematic presentations that will explore landscape transformations at the residential, urban, and metropolitan scales.  In contrast to the modernist approach of tabula rasa, contemporary designers are returning to modernist sites with new motivations, attempting to balance the complex values of natural and cultural systems. Hop to it, and you’ll still be in time to hear the likes of Charles Renfro, Elizabeth K. Meyer, Michael Van Valkenburgh, Julie Bargmann, James Corner, Kathryn Gustafson.

Organized by the Cultural Landscape Foundation, the conference is a continuation of the dialogues initiated at its successful forerunner, The Second Wave of Modernism: Landscape Architecture in America, which convened in Chicago in 2008.
