Event description

Description

Landscape architect Dan Kiley, one of the nation’s most important Post War landscape architects, is the focus of two events being held in conjunction with the traveling photographic exhibition The Landscape Architecture Legacy of Dan Kiley, now extended at the Chicago Architecture Foundation (CAF) through September 19, 2017. Kiley's career spanned more than a half century and his Chicago projects includes the Art Institute of Chicago's South Garden and Milton Lee Olive Park. He worked with significant architects, including Eero Saarinen, Louis Kahn and I.M. Pei, to create internationally acknowledged Modernist design icons. Kiley's legacy is substantial, influential and, like the broad swath of our Modernist designed landscape legacy, ephemeral.
