The Designed Landscape in Dallas

The Designed Landscape in Dallas

Last Friday, a capacity crowd gathered at the Nasher SculptureCenter for a symposium on  “The Designed Landscape in Dallas.” Rick Brettell (always erudite) spokeof the genealogy of landscape architects and planners from George Kessler toPeter Walker who worked to transform what our city’s founder John Neely Bryancalled “the hardes’ country I think on earth.” Peter Walker took over to discuss projects at Stanford and here on theUTD campus before turning it over to a panel of respected architects who talkedabout other projects in and around the area.

I was a good student, toting my legal pad and taking copiousnotes, but about the same time I sat down to post a summary yesterday, I receiveda link to Jerome Weeks’ great article on KERA’s Art & Seek.  So I’ll save myself some time and you someaggravation by sending you here.
