NEW YEAR, NEW WORKS FROM LALH

Thursday, January 23, 2014 | Posted by lalh

LALH has two new books and a new film in development, slated for release in 2014—watch the lalh.org/blog for dates:

Arthur A. Shurcliff:  Design, Preservation, and the Creation of the Colonial Williamsburg Landscape, a book by Elizabeth Hope Cushing, examines how various influences on landscape architect Arthur A. Shurcliff (1870–1957)—his early years in Boston, his training, and his experience creating an Arts-and-Crafts style summer compound in Ipswich, Massachusetts— led to Colonial Williamsburg, his largest and most significant contribution to American landscape architecture.

In John Nolen, Landscape Architect and Planner, author R. Bruce Stephenson profiles this influential American designer of the Progressive era. Nolen (1869–1937) looked to European city-planning models, particularly the English garden city movement, to structure the rapid urbanization of the early twentieth century into more efficient and livable form.

Community by Design: The Olmsted Firm and the Development of Brookline, Massachusetts, the newest film in the America by Design series, shares the title of the 2013 book by Keith N. Morgan, Elizabeth Hope Cushing, and Roger G. Reed. Like the three preceding films, this one runs approximately twelve minutes and will be available for free viewing at lalh.org/films.
