Descrizione

2022 is the bicentennial of the birth of Frederick Law Olmsted. In celebration of this, Experiencing Olmsted highlights 200 of the iconic landscapes created by him and his successors, many of which are open to the public and beloved as major cultural sites. Frederick Law Olmsted is often described as the father of American landscape architecture. He, his firm, and the successor firms that sprung from it worked to shape our parks systems, our suburban neighborhoods, and most of our best beloved green spaces. Experiencing Olmsted explores 200 of those spaces, including New York's Central and Prospect Parks, Stanford University's campus, the United States Capitol Grounds, Druid Hills in Atlanta, Lake Park in Wisconsin, and many more. Readers will find contemporary and historical photography, original drawings and plans, and descriptions of each space that provide background on Olmsted's most important contributions. 2022 is the bicentennial of Olmsted's birth, and there is no better way to celebrate than the pages of this beautifully packaged, thoughtful exploration of the firm's important legacy on North America's landscape. Pgg. 344, rilegato.
