The second Oberlander Prize Forum – “Landscape Activism” – explores the depth, complexity, and entrepreneurship of activist practices throughout the country. Julie Bargmann, inaugural laureate of the Cornelia Hahn Oberlander International Landscape Architecture Prize, is known for an activist approach to practice. Like Cornelia Oberlander before her, and like Ian McHarg and Frederick Law Olmsted, Sr. before them, she has worked to transform both the public landscape and the nature of landscape architecture itself.
On October 28, 2022, The Cultural Landscape Foundation (TCLF) will convene a group of notable design professionals, historians, and critics to consider the ambitions and directions of activist practices today. Such practices range widely, encompassing individual designers and design firms, non-governmental organizations, and academic research; representatives of all these groups will be included.
