Lawrence Halprin, 1916-2009

The passing of Larry Halrpin will be noted in many ways over the next few months. He was clearly one of the great 20th Century landscape architects in the US and the world. The San Francisco Chronicle highlights his impact with this quote:
"He was the single most influential landscape architect of the postwar years," said Charles Birnbaum, president of the Cultural Landscape Foundation. "He redefined the profession's role in cities."
