Masters of Modern Landscape Design
In collaboration with the Indianapolis Museum of Art, the Library of American Landscape History will stage a national conference featuring eight of the mid-20th century’s most influential landscape architects. These practitioners began to question the traditional Beaux Arts methods of design as early as the 1930s. Rejecting historical precedent, they searched for spatial and artistic forms relevant to the modern condition.
The panel of distinguished speakers will help promote awareness of landscape design as an important art form and urge support for the preservation of great works of American modernism. The speakers are also authors in a new book series by LALH to be distributed by W.W. Norton.
Featured landscape architects include Thomas Dolliver Church (1902-1978), Ruth Shellhorn (1909-2006), Garrett Eckbo (1910-2000), Dan Kiley (1912-2004), James C. Rose (1913-1991), Lawrence Halprin (1916-2009), Robert Royston (1919-2008) and Arthur Edwin Bye (1919-2001).
