NZILA 2009 ‘The Big Picture’ Workshop – Queenstown – managing large scale landscape change

Like many visitor destinations internationally, the growth of the Queenstown Lakes district has been subject to pressures, forces and demands from outside the district and often outside New Zealand.

Landslide 2008: Marvels of Modernism (until Dec 4)

George Eastman House
Rochester, New York
November 19, 2008 to January 4, 2009

The Cultural Landscape Foundation, Garden Design magazine, and George Eastman House
International Museum of Photography and Film Announce the 2008 ‘Landslide’ Designees:
Marvels of Modernism

Modernist landscapes with boomerang curves, reservoirs inspired by Joan Miro paintings, animated fountains, soaring roof gardens, geometric earthworks, futuristic Fair grounds, and sunken and expansive plazas all became celebrated design elements during the nation’s massive post‐World War II development. These experimental and innovative expressions, adopted by maverick landscape architects such as Dan Kiley and Lawrence Halprin, became a catalyst for inserting Modern design sensibilities into newly minted public and private spaces. During this period, designers, their clients, and patrons utilized revolutionary new and experimental materials, and subdued transitions between indoor and outdoor spaces to infuse Modern forms into classic sensibilities. However, until recently, many of these designs have been misunderstood and underappreciated. To draw attention to these irreplaceable works, the 2008 Landslide theme: Marvels of Modernism, spotlights our diverse postwar garden and landscape heritage.
