What is The Legacy Project?

In collaboration with American Society of Landscape Architects Minnesota Chapter (ASLA-MN), the University of Minnesota College of Design Department of Landscape Architecture will undertake a process of oral history gathering, focusing on the stories of key landscape architectural contributors from the second half of the 20th century. The histories will be archived with the Northwest Architectural Archives, University of Minnesota Libraries. For more information about the project and event contact aslamnlegacy@gmail.com or call 612.250.1320.

This project has been made possible by a grant from the MN Historical and Cultural Heritage Fund, administered by the Minnesota Historical Society, through the vote by Minnesotans on November 4, 2008.

Additional support for The Legacy Project has been provided by the University of Minnesota College of Design Department of Landscape Architecture, the American Society of Landscape Architects - Minnesota Chapter, and alumni and friends of the department including Bryan Carlson, Roger Clemence, Bob Close, Damon Farber, Roger Martin, Peter Olin, and Barry Warner.
