TCLF has launched a Kickstarter campaign to bring to completion the production of a Pioneers of American Landscape Design® online video oral history on the life and significant body of work of landscape architect and professor of landscape architecture Richard Haag. Haag is one of the nation’s most important Postwar landscape architects and the first from the Pacific Northwest to be chronicled in the Pioneers series. He is acclaimed for his innovative environmental and ecological design solutions at the sublime Bloedel Reserve on Bainbridge Island, Washington, Seattle’s Gas Works Park, a former industrial site, and numerous other locations.

The Washington Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects has partnered with TCLF in order to make the production of the oral history possible. TCLF is seeking $12,000 to complete the project so that it can launch in late spring of 2014. This is the 11th in the Pioneers oral history series, which TCLF launched in 2003. The goal of the series is to document, collect, and preserve first-hand information from pioneering landscape architects/educators and to make these stories available to future generations of stewards, designers and researchers. The series has been thrice supported with grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, and in 2010, the American Society of Landscape Architects presented the series the highest honor in the Communication's Category, an Award of Excellence.
