Charles Birnbaum, FASLA, FAAR, president of The Cultural Landscape Foundation in Washington, DC, will be engaging folkes with a free lecture covering some of the highlights in his book about restoring the modernist landscape. Following his lecture will be a book signing as well.
During the period immediately following WWII, the modern movement redefined traditional values, beliefs, and artistic forms in landscape architecture and urban design. Until recently, however, Modernist buildings and landscapes have been subject to neglect and elimination. Birnbaum offers recommendations and strategies for reversing the trend that has put this significant chapter in our nation’s evolution at risk.
The Toby at IMA, Indianapolis, 6 pm.
Approved by LA CES for continued education credits through the Indiana Chapter of ASLA
