Managing Historic Landscapes and Gardens: Part I
with Calder Loth
This is Part I of a two-part course. Part II is available here.
Using well-known historic places as case studies, this class will explore varying mindsets toward the relationship between traditional architecture and landscape. Before-and-after views will illustrate how numerous historic gardens and landscapes have received critical evaluation and treatment. The class will stress the importance of control in creating and maintaining appropriate historic effects. Many of the approaches discussed can apply to contemporary projects.
