Summary:
This book presents the work of Boston-based landscape architecture firm Reed Hilderbrand. Led by founding principals Douglas Reed and Gary Hilderbrand, the firm is widely recognized for rigorously conceived and carefully executed projects that merge the particular native qualities of a site with recognizably contemporary design expression. Their work embodies a deep embrace of modernism, a devotion to intellectual traditions in their field and a rich engagement of horticulture and ecological systems. The book examines a range of 40 public and private commissions in cities and rural settings, including institutional campuses, residences and urban regeneration projects such as the Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University; Bennington College, Bennington, VT; Duke University, Durham, NC; Poetry Foundation, Chicago; Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts, Kansas City, MO; Clyfford Still Museum, Denver; Dallas Museum of Art; Phoenix Art Museum; and the redevelopment of portions of the South Boston waterfront.
