19th October 2018,Architectural Archives of the University of Pennsylvania, School of Design, Philadelphia, United States
DATE: 19/10/2018
"Coinciding with the ASLA Annual Meeting in Philadelphia, we invite you to join The Cultural Landscape Foundation (TCLF) at a reception in honor of landscape architect Harriet Pattison, FASLA at The Harvey and Irwin Kroiz Gallery at The Architectural Archives of the University of Pennsylvania, School of Design.
In a career spanning more than 50 years, Pattison worked with leading 20th-century practitioners, including noted Modernist architect Louis Kahn and landscape architect George Patton, with whom she collaborated on the design for the iconic Kimball Art Museum in Fort Worth, Texas. Pattison also worked on Kahn’s posthumously realized commission, the Franklin D. Roosevelt Four Freedoms Park on Roosevelt Island, New York, which opened in 2012. At the reception, rare original drawings done by Pattison and Kahn for those two projects will be on display.
In 2016 TCLF launched the thirteenth installment in its award-winning Pioneers of American Landscape Design® Oral History Project, documenting Pattison’s life and career. Her oeuvre ranges from residential gardens and public housing, to the 150-acre Hershey Company campus. Pattison is the third woman documented by the series. Her work in post-World War II American cities, in a profession traditionally dominated by men, is an indispensable and inspiring chapter in the history of landscape architecture.
Attendees of the excursion Longwood Gardens: Experience a World Apart (separate registration required) who register to attend the reception will dropped off at the Penn time for the start of the reception." (by Eventbrit)
