Architects of an American Landscape: Henry Hobson Richardson, Frederick Law Olmsted, and the Reimagining of America's Public and Private Spaces written by Hugh Howard
As the planner of New York’s Central Park, Frederick Law Olmsted is widely remembered as America’s first and finest landscape architect. Henry Hobson Richardson was universally regarded in their era as the nation’s most original and influential architect. The two friends and frequent collaborators met their moment in the post-Civil War years, a time of extraordinary cultural, economic, and social change. They accomplished nothing less than the reimagining of the American landscape. Virtually join author Hugh Howard in a conversation about his book and the remarkable lives and accomplishments of Frederick Law Olmsted and Henry Hobson Richardson.
