Modernist landscape architect Dan Kiley’s (1912–2004) emphasis on formal geometry had a great influence over generations of practitioners, including Douglas Reed, FASLA, and Gary Hilderbrand, FASLA. The duo, founding principals of Watertown, Massachusetts-based Reed Hilderbrand, the 2014 recipient of the American Society of Landscape Architects’ Firm Award, discuss their current work in a presentation introduced by Charles A. Birnbaum, FASLA, founder and president of The Cultural Landscape Foundation (CLF). The Foundation organized the traveling exhibition The Landscape Architecture Legacy of Dan Kiley, which will be open for attendees to view before the program.
