Friday, July 1, 2016 was the centennial of Lawrence Halprin’s birth. In celebration of his life and achievements, The Cultural Landscape Foundation is expanding its What's Out There Weekend format to include several months of tours of over a dozen landscapes designed by Lawrence Halprin and his firm that will run from July 23 to October 30. An excerpt from the TCLF website below gives more information about the initiative. To read the full article, click here.
What's Out There Weekends: The Public Landscapes of Lawrence Halprin will feature free, expert-led tours of landscapes across the country, from Portland, Oregon and The Sea Ranch, California, to Atlanta, Georgia and Charlottesville, Virginia. One tour will even take place in Jerusalem, Israel. The tours, held over a four-month period, will serve as a prelude to the unveiling of TCLF's annual Landslide initiative, which will increase the public visibility of Halprin's irreplaceable design legacy while promoting informed stewardship to guide these landscapes into the future. The capstone of these efforts will be an exhibition of original photography and artifacts titled The Landscape Architecture Legacy of Lawrence Halprin, set to open at the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C., in November and traveling thereafter.
