Halprin Exhibition Reception in Conjunction with ASLA Annual Meeting in Los Angeles

Join The Cultural Landscape Foundation (TCLF) at a twilight, private reception at the A+D Architecture and Design Museum>Los Angeles being held in conjunction with the ASLA Annual Conference and EXPO this October.

The Landscape Architecture of Lawrence Halprin, a traveling photographic exhibition about the life and work of landscape architect Lawrence Halprin (1916-2009), will be on view. Organized and curated by TCLF in 2016 during the centennial anniversary of Halprin’s birth, the exhibition features 56 newly commissioned photographs by leading landscape photographers of dozens of Halprin’s major works, ranging from recently rediscovered residential projects created early in his career in the 1950s to the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial in Washington, D.C. to capstone projects such as the Yosemite Falls approach and Stern Grove in San Francisco, and significant postmodernist projects in the Los Angeles area including the Los Angeles Open Space Network and Plaza Las Fuentes in Pasadena. The exhibition both honors the influential designer and calls attention to the need for informed and effective stewardship of his irreplaceable legacy.

The launch event, following the daylong Outstanding Ojai excursion, will culminate with the presentation of the 2017 Stewardship Excellence Award.

A full-color printed gallery guide accompanies the exhibition with information about each of the sites, as well as a complementary online exhibition presenting additional photography, selections from a video oral history with Halprin, and assessments about the present condition of public Halprin commissions
