Lawrence Halprin Gallery Guide

Lawrence Halprin changed the profession of landscape architecture. His theories and designs aimed to improve the lives of urban dwellers during an era when many people were fleeing cities. He invented new types of landscapes that were dynamic and ahead of their time: environmentally sensitive communites, parks under and over freeways, recycled industrial sites, and integrated urban space networks.
