Czech Landscape Architecture - Reflections

talk

November 3, 2017 , 7:00 PM

[3rd Floor]

An illustrated talk on the past and present of Czech landscape architecture, gardens, parks, public spaces and greenways by landscape architects Stephan Yarabek of Hudson & Pacific Designs in Saugerties, NY, and Zuzana Ambrozova, Ph.D., from Department of Landscape Architecture at Mendel University Horticulture School in Brno, and a 2017 Fulbright Research Scholar at the University of California at Berkeley.

The speakers will also pay tribute to the late Lubomir and Tiree Chmelar, who, after the fall of communism in Czechoslovakia in 1989, co-founded the Prague Vienna Greenways program and the Friends of Czech Greenways organization. They actively promoted cultural and environmental preservation and landscape architecture education in the country. Thanks to their effort, the Lednice-Valtice Chateaux and Parks have been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1996.

Open to the public. Suggested donation $5.
