SPUR Panel Discussion - Modern Landscape Design
Sep 15, 2011 to Sep 16, 2011
San Francisco, CA
United States

The Bay Area was the heart of innovative landscape design theory and practice at mid-century, led by Thomas Church, Robert Royston, Lawrence Halprin, Garrett Eckbo, Geraldine Knight Scott and other progressive designers in the region. Join SPUR and The Cultural Landscape Foundation for a half-day symposium exploring the legacy of their work and its influence on contemporary landscapes in the Bay Area. The symposium will coincide with What’s Out There Weekend San Francisco, a two-day event featuring tours of the Bay Area’s rich and diverse heritage of Modernist designed landscapes. Contemporary designers, historians, policy makers, and property owners - including John King from the San Francisco Chronicle, Joe Brown from AECOM, and Courtney Damkroger from the San Francisco Preservation Commission - will discuss the work and influence of modern landscape design in the Bay Area and will focus on the policies, preservation, stewardship and theories associated with this movement.
