In the late 1950s, Richard Neutra designed and built the visitor’s center for Gettysburg National Military Park as a monument commemorating the battle. The building has since been replaced and now stands vacant.
Upon its dedication over 25 years ago, Skyline Park became a signature landmark for the City of Denver, CO. The park, an emblematic work by visionary landscape architect Lawrence Halprin, immediately grew to be a destination point for local residents, businesses, workers, and visitors to the city.
Designed between 1874 and 1892, Frederick Law Olmsted, the founder of the profession of landscape architecture, dedicated two decades to transform this important symbolic space into a landscape that melds the L'Enfant City Plan of 1791 into a procession of harmonious spaces embracing the Capitol building.
