Landslide 2013: The Landscape Architecture Legacy of Daniel Urban Kiley
Should not the role of design be to reconnect human beings with their space on their land? - Dan Kiley
In honor of the recent centennial of Daniel Urban Kiley’s birth (1912-2004), this year’s Landslide®, The Cultural Landscape Foundation’s annual thematic compendium of threatened and at-risk landscapes, will present a retrospective of the work of this visionary Modernist landscape architect who designed more than 1,000 projects worldwide, often collaborating with other significant architects and designers of his day. The 2013 Landslide®: The Landscape Architecture Legacy of Daniel Urban Kiley will highlight Kiley’s significant legacy as well as those works that are at-risk and by extension the significant threat many important works of Modernist landscape architecture face. Landslide® will also present case studies on projects that have been successfully adapted to 21st century needs and shed light on shifting views about Modernism.
