The exhibition, which debuted at the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C., is organized and curated by TCLF. Created in 2016 during the centennial anniversary of Halprin's birth, the exhibition features 56 newly commissioned photographs by leading landscape photographers of dozens of Halprin's major works, ranging from recently rediscovered residential projects created early in his career in the 1950s to the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial in Washington, D.C.
The exhibition, part of TCLF's Landslide program, calls attention to threatened and at-risk works of landscape architecture and landscape features, and will include photographs of some of Halprin's most iconic projects, from Sea Ranch in northern California (photography by Saxon Holt) to the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial in Washington, D.C.
Where some people may simply see a park, forest, or canyon, TCLF sees more.
We urge you to visit the complete online presentation of this initiative (tclf.org/landslide), the traveling photo exhibit and the trees themselves.
Its goal, according to Charles Birnbaum, TCLF
founder and president, is to make living heritage visible.
