The Cultural Landscape Foundation
Conference: Second Wave of Modernism II,  Landscape Complexity and Transformation (November 18, 2011 in NYC)

In recent years, there has been an accelerating attitudinal shift: a departure away from the modernist’s tabula rasa exemplified at varying scales by icons such as Philip Johnson’s Beck House in Dallas and the Lincoln Center Campus in New York.

Today designers are returning to modernist sites with new motivations, attempting to balance the complex values of natural and cultural systems.

To investigate this significant evolution of professional practice, three groups of thematic presentations have been assembled that will collectively explore landscape transformations at residential, urban and metropolitan scales. The conference follows and continues dialogs initiated at the sold-out Second Wave of Modernism conference convened in Chicago in 2008.


ASLA CEUs will be available for this event.
