Landscapes for Living: Post War Years in Northern California

Berkeley, CA

Landscapes for Living looks at the unique Post War legacy of public and private landscapes in Northern California through participants who played an active role during an unprecedented, optimistic time of innovation and experimentation.

The third in a series of national symposia will place a critical spotlight on a revolutionary era of practice at the perfect venue: the University of California at Berkeley. It was this campus that served as a fertile laboratory for many of the designers that will be investigated – it is here that they were educated (e.g. Garrett Eckbo), built projects (e.g. Lawrence Halprin),  and in many cases, later taught (e.g. Robert Royston).
