Landscape as Catalyst: Lawrence Halprin's Open-Space Network in DTLA

Halprin Drawing

Join Lisa on a day tour of Lawrence Halprin's Open Space Network in Downtown LA! Lisa was happy to assist Urban Land Institute in creating a walking tour of Halprin's work. Landscape as Catalyst: Lawrence Halprin's Open-Space Network in DTLA begins at A+D Museum, where Charles Birnbaum, founder and CEO of The Cultural Landscape Foundation, will lead a walk-through and discussion of "The Landscape Architecture of Lawrence Halprin," an exhibit of Halprin's work as shown by contemporary photographs. Tour participants will be transported to the first of four sites: Grand Hope Park, where M. Brian Tichenor, AIA, of Tichenor & Thorp Architects, will begin leading the tour. We will then proceed to Wells Fargo Court and Bunker Hill Steps before culminating at Halprin's most well-known contribution to Los Angeles, Maguire Gardens. The day concludes with an included lunch at Cafe Pinot, overlooking Maguire Gardens.

Further information and tickets are available here. This will be very fun and informative day - we hope to see you there!
