Landscape Architects of Rochester (Rochester Brainery Class)
April 24 @ 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM
Most people know about the architects who have shaped our cities. Whether it’s an internationally-known figure like Frank Lloyd Wright or a prominent local designer like Claude Bragdon, we all intrinsically know that someone designed the buildings around us. What is less commonly known is that our city’s landscapes–be it public parks, streets, or private gardens– were also intentionally designed. The places that look and feel natural to us, like they’ve always been there, are that way precisely because they were conceived by talented landscape architects.
This class will provide an introduction to the lives and works of the designers who shaped the parks, public spaces, gardens, and neighborhoods of the greater Rochester region.
Instructors are members of the Young Urban Preservationists, an affiliate group of The Landmark Society of Western New York. The YUPs are an emerging generation of preservationists in the greater Rochester region dedicated to promoting inclusive, modern, and innovative preservation practices to help revitalize communities and our built environment. And we have fun doing it!
