| Historic LoDo: Ann Komara will discuss and sign the new book Lawrence Halprin’s Skyline Park (Princeton Architectural Press), which showcases the acclaimed landscape designer’s urban renewal effort for downtown Denver in the 1970s. Drawing on the rugged beauty of the city’s natural surroundings for inspiration, Halprin created a signature landmark of sunken fountains, walls, and berms that served as an urban promenade and an oasis from the surrounding streets. This book honors the legacy of Halprin’s original work by presenting the most complete documentation available of the park’s conception, construction, and use before its total redesign in 2003. This first book on Halprin’s modern landscape project features new photography, archival drawings, and original documentation. This publication was funded in part by a grant award from the State Historical Fund, a program of History Colorado, the Colorado Historical Society. The work is also supported by The Cultural Landscape Foundation. |
