Frederick Law Olmsted: Designing America PBS film screening
Things To Know
Join us for a special viewing of the PBS film: Frederick Law Olmsted: Designing America. Self-taught Renaissance man Frederick Law Olmsted, his two sons and the Olmsted Brothers landscape architecture firm left a huge imprint upon the landscapes of North America. Public parks, private estates and gardens, residential neighborhoods, entire community designs, and institutional campuses. Not only did Frederick Law Olmsted and his progeny found the field of landscape architecture, they also were early proponents of urban planning. The Olmsted design philosophy addressed public health—physical and mental health, and issues of equity and access that are even more relevant to contemporary park managers and users. Frederick Law Olmsted foresaw the crucial role of the experience of nature in the urban setting and the very role that parks can play for the enactment of democracy in a multi-ethnic, multiracial society.
