In partnership with The Cultural Landscape Foundation (TCLF), SF Rec and Park announces the opening of The Landscape Architecture of Lawrence Halprin, a traveling photo exhibition about the life and work of landscape architect Lawrence Halprin (1916-2009). The exhibit opens May 25, 2017 and will remain on view through September 4, 2017 at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francsico.
The show was created in 2016 during the centennial anniversary of Halprin’s birth. The exhibition features 56 newly commissioned photographs by leading landscape photographers featuring dozens of Halprin’s major works. Photos range from recently rediscovered residential projects created early in his career to the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial in Washington, D.C. and include capstone projects such as the Yosemite Falls approach as well as Stern Grove in San Francisco. The exhibition both honors the influential designer and calls attention to the need for informed and effective stewardship of his irreplaceable legacy.
