Description
This session will explore landscape heritage conservation focusing on design authorship, sustaining original design intent, and collaboration with the past designers of nationally important cultural landscapes. Strategies for intervening within highly sensitive and historically significant designed landscapes will be addressed through the presentation of three projects: the General Management Plan & Environmental Impact Statement for Gateway Arch National Park in St. Louis, the landscape master plan and design of the new sculpture terrace for the National Gallery of Art East Building in Washington, DC, and the design for the reconstruction of the 3-acre 18th-century pleasure and kitchen garden at George Mason’s Gunston Hall in Fairfax County, Virginia.
