This website was created to accompany the traveling photographic exhibition The Landscape Architecture of Lawrence Halprin, which debuted at the National Building Museum on November 5, 2016. The exhibition was organized by The Cultural Landscape Foundation (TCLF), and co-curated by Charles A. Birnbaum, President & CEO, FASLA, FAAR, Nord Wennerstrom, Director of Communications, and Eleanor Cox, Project Manager, in collaboration with G. Martin Moeller, Jr., Senior Curator at the National Building Museum.
The production of this the exhibition and this website would not have been possible without the help and support of the Halprin family, and the archivists at the Architectural Archives of the University of Pennsylvania, where Lawrence Halprin’s archive is kept. We wish to thank the site owners and administrators who graciously allowed us to document their properties, particularly Richard Grey, Diana Bonyhadi, Emma Chapman, and Anna Halprin, who allowed us access to their private residences. Finally, we also wish to thank the photographers who generously donated their time and energy to documenting these sites, and Russell Hart for proofing the photography.
