The Modern Garden

As the weather gives a hope of warm Spring days ahead, my mind quickly turns to the garden after reading the Fall 2008 edition of Modernism. The Cultural Landscape Foundation and the Chicago Architecture Foundation joined forces for a conference in November and presented The Second Wave of Modernism in Landscape Architecture in America. Topics such as "what makes a landscape design modern?" were discussed by the nations leading landscape architects and garden design professionals of how they were influenced by the preceding generations of modernists.

Speakers included Andrea Cockran from San Francisco.

Walter Hood of Berkley
Tom Oslund of Minneapolis

Michael Van Valkenburrgh of New York City

Reed Hilderbrand of Watertown, MA
Thomas Woltz of Charlottesville, VA
