With modernist landscapes from the 1940s to 1970s, landscape architects often must choose among preservation, replacement, or adaptation. This session considers the challenges of adapting significant mid-century works to contemporary needs in ways that are respectful of the original design intent.
1) Understand whether to choose preservation, replacement, or adaptation of a modernist landscape.
2) Develop approaches and criteria to recovering common themes and values from modernist landscape designs for contemporary and future use.
3) Know the criteria for the inclusion of these landscapes on the National Register and other significant state and federal designations.
4) Learn to bridge the various aesthetic, functional, and cultural values of the public, professionals, and government in re-examining modernist landscapes.
