Continuing Education Opportunities

Design Process: Thinking in the Box, Before Thinking Out of the Box
March 24, 2014 from 4:00 PM
Ball State University, College of Architecture and Planning, AB 100

Professor Russell’s lecture will focus on the continuing need for students, instructors and practitioners, alike, to reassess how they understand and apply Design Process. By recognizing the enormous value gained through the full application of Design Process, students, instructors and practitioners, will find deeper meaning and greater satisfaction from the results of their endeavors. In turn, these same results will generate a new level of inspiration and completed projects that respond, more fully, to the needs and desires of the client and to the critical environmental and contextual demands of a given site. John Russell is an emeritus professor in the Department of Landscape Architecture. 

If you plan to watch Professor Russell’s lecture via webcast and would like to receive continuing education credit from the American Society of Landscape Architects, please contact Lori Pence at lpence@bsu.edu or (765) 285-5879, no later than Mar. 23 to make those arrangements.

Modern Landscape Architecture: Transition and Transformation
May 29, 2014 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM
The Toby, Indianapolis Museum of Art

During the period following WWII, a great surge of collective energies -- the Modern movement -- redefined traditional values, beliefs, and artistic forms. Unfortunately, reasoned criticism did not follow, and until recently Modern landscapes slipped beyond even the peripheral vision of art historians. From America's first "park plaza" in Minneapolis to Dan Kiley's revolutionary design for the Miller Garden in Columbus, we must have a commitment to preserving and interpreting Modernist landscape architecture.

In this program, Charles A. Birnbaum, president of the Cultural Landscape Foundation, offers recommendations and strategies to preserve these often "invisible" public and private places that represent a significant chapter in our nation's evolution.

Presented by Indiana Modern, an affinity group of Indiana Landmarks, and sponsored by the Cornelius O'Brien Lecture Series Concerning Preservation, the lecture takes place at The Toby at the Indianapolis Museum of Art.

FREE but registration requested at https://modernistlecture.eventbrite.com, or call Indiana Landmarks at 800-450-4534, 317-639-4534.

This program is offered in conjunction with Indiana Landmarks' Back to the Future Mid-century Modern Home Tour on Saturday, May 31 in Indianapolis.
