The Landscape Architecture of Lawrence Halprin



The Landscape Architecture of Lawrence Halprin

January 26 - February 19, 2018

The Landscape Architecture of Lawrence Halprin is a traveling photographic exhibition about the life and work of Lawrence Halprin (1916-2009), one of the nation’s most important and influential landscape architects. The exhibition, which debuted at the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C., is organized and curated by The Cultural Landscape Foundation, a Washington, D.C.-based non-profit. Created in 2016 during the centennial anniversary of Halprin’s birth, the exhibition features 56 newly commissioned photographs by leading landscape photographers of dozens of Halprin’s major works, ranging from recently rediscovered residential projects created early in his career in the 1950s to the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial in Washington, D.C. capstone projects such as the Yosemite Falls approach and Stern Grove in San Francisco; it also includes Heritage Park Plaza in Fort Worth. The exhibition both honors the influential designer and calls attention to the need for informed and effective stewardship of his irreplaceable legacy.
