The Founders: Making the Department of Landscape Architecture
6-9 PM, includes reception following program
RSVP requested

THE AMERICAN SOCIETY OF LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTS - MINNESOTA CHAPTER LEGACY PROJECT PRESENTS “THE FOUNDERS,” a panel discussion with Herb Baldwin, Roger Martin, Roger Clemence and Peter Olin on the early days of the Department of Landscape Architecture and reflections on the impact that landscape architects have had on shaping the Minnesota environment.

What is the ASLA-MN Legacy Project?
In collaboration with the Minnesota Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA-MN), the University of Minnesota (UofM) College of Design (CDes) will undertake a process of oral history gathering focusing on the stories of key landscape architectural contributors from the second half of the 20th century. The ASLA-MN Legacy Project will collect oral histories that record not only the lives of local landscape architects that have influenced their profession, but will also tell how the Minnesota landscape and environment have been enhanced by landscape architects over the past century. The histories will be archived with the Northwest Architectural Archives, University of Minnesota Libraries.

For more information about the project and event contact aslamnlegacy@gmail.com or call 612-250-1320.

This project has been made possible by a grant from the MN Historical and Cultural Heritage Fund, administered by the Minnesota Historical Society, through the vote of Minnesotans on November 4, 2008.

Additional support for the Legacy Project provided by the University of Minnesota College of Design Department of Landscape Architecture, the American Society of Landscape Architects - Minnesota Chapter, and alumni and friends of the department including Bryan Carlson, Roger Clemence, Bob Close, Damon Farber, Roger Martin, Peter Olin, and Barry Warner.
