Preseving Modernist Landcapes

Postby scowsa » Thu Oct 04, 2007 9:45 am

"Kidney-shaped pools, boomerang curves, floating cantilevered decks, adventure playgrounds, sculptural Japanese maples, revolutionary new materials, the melding of Modern forms and classic sensibilities. Often experimental and innovative, these gardens and landscapes possess subdued transitions between indoors and outdoors, yet they have often been misunderstood and underappreciated.

The Cultural Landscape Foundation (TCLF) and Garden Design magazine are teaming up to call for nominations for the 2008 Landslide program – Marvels of Modernism. TCLF, established in 1998, is the only not-for-profit foundation in America dedicated to increasing the public’s awareness of the important legacy of our cultural landscapes and helping to save them for the future. Since its inception in 2003, the Landslide initiative has spotlighted significant public and private landscapes at risk, and this year’s theme will again do so by calling attention to our diverse and unique Post-War garden and landscape heritage."

As khummer says, this seems to be the first time.

Garden Design mag has often discussed modernist garden design and their Sept/Oct '05 mag focused on it. I was not aware of The Cultural Landscape Foundation before reading about this competition in the latest Garden Design.

I have noted that their web site advertises two books on Preserving Modern Landscape Architecture

They haven't focused on modernist landscapes exclusively in past years. Our landscape (Village Green) was chosen last year...
