Attention teenagers and older adults!
Are you interested in current challenges in landscape design? Join the National Park Service for a case study presented by BSLA member Casey-Lee Bastien and then participate in a hands on design workshop to plan your own park.
Frederick Law Olmsted National Historic Site in Brookline and the Boston Society of Landscape Architects (BSLA) invite the public to a special park design workshop. This first-time program is being offered in connection with the site’s third annual Inspired by Olmsted art and writing contest for high school students. It also celebrates the 195th anniversary of Frederick Law Olmsted’s birth (April 26).
This hands-on workshop, which includes a presentation by a Boston area landscape architect, is suitable for teenagers and young adults, as well as older adults. Advance registration is required. For other information on the workshop, please call 617-566-1689 Monday through Saturday.
The Park Design Workshop will begin with a practicing landscape architect presenting case studies of one or two local public landscape projects. Participants will then spend the remainder of the afternoon designing their own local park that addresses some of the issues raised in the preceding presentation. The event will conclude with brief presentations and group discussion facilitated by a National Park Service staff member from Frederick Law Olmsted National Historic Site.
RSVP is required. Please do so by April 24.
