From the Publisher. In 1988, the Canadian Centre for Architecture began an extraordinary photographic commission: to photograph the present state of the parks, private estates, subdivisions, and cemeteries designed by Frederick Law Olmsted (1822-1903), North America's most important landscape architect. Photographers Robert Burley, Lee Friedlander, and Geoffrey James spent seven years visiting and revisiting Olmsted's landscapes—from the best known, such as Central Park in New York and the Emerald Necklace in Boston, to the lesser-known Lake Park in Milwaukee and Mountain View Cemetery in Oakland. This book accompanies an exhibition of 160 photographs from the archive of over 900 images now in the CCA collection.
