TCLF's latest conference, Second Wave of Modernism IV: Making Space within Place, was held on October 4, 2019, in the Horchow Auditorium at the Dallas Museum of Art. The conference featured several Dallas-based experts who were joined by others from throughout the United States. The topics were equally varied and timely, focusing on the role that landscape architects have played in laying the foundation for today’s planning and design work (exploring several iconic projects completed in the Dallas Arts District over the past 35 years); city projects that balance design against natural and cultural values, and the imperative to deal with climate change; how a public-private partnership was able to facilitate the development of priority parks in the urban core; and recent innovations in creative management and stewardship.
