Whether they created public plazas or private retreats, each of the eight landscape architects featured in the upcoming LALH conference, “Masters of Modern Landscape Design” asserted a distinct artistic vision. What they shared, from Dan Kiley and Garrett Eckbo to Ruth Shellhorn and Lawrence Halprin, was assertiveness itself—the boldness to break with tradition and embrace designs they believed were relevant to the modern condition.

On September 28 and 29, 2013, LALH convenes nine prominent scholars at the Indianapolis Museum of Art to lecture on eight modern landscape architects. Each speaker is also the author of a forthcoming LALH monograph in a new book series that will explore the major works and legacies of these modern masters:

  • Jane Amidon on Dan Kiley
  • Dean Cardasis on James Rose
  • Kelly Comras on Ruth Shellhorn
  • Kenneth Helphand on Lawrence Halprin
  • JC Miller and Reuben Rainey on Robert Royston
  • David Streatfield on Garrett Eckbo
  • Marc Treib on Thomas Church
  • Thaisa Way on A. E. Bye

Professional Development Hours will be offered to members of the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA): 9 PDHs – LA CES approved. Register now online or call the IMA at 317-955-2339.
