films: North America by Design

Overview: North America by Design

A series of documentary films about important landscapes and their designers produced by LALH in association with award-winning Florentine Films/Hott Productions.

Through the magic of the camera’s movement, these films explore not only the physical reality but also the spirit of intriguing places and the people who imagined, created, and cared for them.

Grounded in core scholarship distilled from LALH books, the mini-documentaries are hosted by historians and landscape architects who explain the design process in terms that will engage nonspecialists as well as students, practitioners, and scholars.

Our goal is to educate wide audiences about the fine art of landscape architecture. Each film is also work of art in its own right.

Viewing time is approximately fourteen minutes each. Enjoy!
