YUP Brainery Class: Rochester’s Landscape Architects
May 19 @ 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 by our Young Urban Preservationists through the Rochester Brainery 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.
