Recent Lecture: Modern Landscape Architecture and the Pedestrian City
The Providence Preservation Society hosted its Spring Lecture, Modern Landscape Architecture and the Pedestrian City, with speakers Tim Love of Utile and Charles A. Birnbaum of The Cultural Landscape Foundation on April 21st. With a focus on I.M. Pei’s Cathedral Square in Providence, the lecture examined the historical significance of “invisible” public places, put them into context of the Modern movement in architecture, and proposed strategies to honor the importance and sustained longevity of these landscapes.
