Lawrence Halprin's Skyline Park at Van Alen Books

New York, NY


Lawrence Halprin’s Skyline Park is the inaugural publication from Modern Landscapes: Transition and Transformation, a Princeton Architectural Press series produced with The Cultural Landscape Foundation that focuses on mid-century works that have been demolished or have undergone a significant transformation. Skyline Park showcases the acclaimed landscape architect’s urban renewal effort for downtown Denver in the 1970s through new photography, archival drawings, and original documentation.

Join author Anna Komara, Associate Professor of Landscape Architecture at the University of Colorado Denver, and Charles Birnbaum, series editor and president of The Cultural Landscape Foundation, for a conversation on the park’s conception, construction, and use before its redesign in 2003 and the launch of the Modern Landscapes series.
