Description
As urban growth continues at a relentless pace, Charles A. Birnbaum, FASLA, FAAR, believes it is crucial for landscape architects to weave a site's history into new designs. He points to Philadelphia's Society Hill and the Russell Page Garden at The Frick Collection as early inspirations for managing change with continuity. More recent projects such as Lincoln Road (Miami) and Spain's Madrid RIO further demonstrate how historic preservation can blend with modern design to showcase a city's unique cultural assets. The founder and CEO of The Cultural Landscape Foundation, Birnbaum is at the forefront of efforts to save significant works of landscape architecture, including Chicago's Olmsted and Vaux-designed Jackson Park and Washington, D.C.'s Modernist Pershing Park. A Visiting Professor at Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture Planning + Preservation, he has authored numerous publications and received many awards, most recently the ASLA Medal (2017).
