This traveling photographic exhibition highlights the life and work of Lawrence Halprin, one of the foremost landscape architects of the twentieth century. His prolific career spanned more than five decades, and the innovative techniques he pioneered changed the profession forever. When NorthPark was built in 1965, Raymond D. Nasher relied on Halprin’s expertise for the planters in Neiman Marcus Court and the fountain in Dillard’s Court. The Landscape Architecture of Lawrence Halprin was created in 2016 during the centennial of Halprin’s birth and features 56 newly commissioned photographs of his works by leading landscape photographers. The subjects range from recently rediscovered residential projects created early in his career to the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial in Washington, D.C. and the Stern Grove in San Francisco.
