2015 HALS Challenge: Documenting Modernist Landscapes
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com -
Contributed By: The Historic American Landscapes Survey (HALS), National Park Service
Email The Author: Chris_Stevens@nps.gov
Website: http://www.nps.gov/hdp/competitions/2015HALSChallengeFlier.pdf

The Historic American Landscapes Survey (HALS) was created in 2000 to document our country's dynamic landscapes. Much progress has been made in identifying cultural landscapes but more is needed to document these designed and vernacular places.

For the 6th annual HALS Challenge, we invite you to document modernist landscapes unique to your region of the country. During the mid-20th century, landscape architects responded to the regional environment using design as an agent of social change, creating human scale space, modern forms, and sculptural compositions, which were intended to be experienced rather than simply viewed.

The designs of renowned modernist landscape architects like Church, Eckbo, Kiley, Halprin, and Rose face developmental threats despite growing national awareness.The lesser known works of many other regional designers must be documented to encourage their preservation.

Robert E. Marvin, fondly referred to as the father of Southern landscape architecture, designed landscapes that celebrated the unique regionalism of the South Carolina low country, and Guy Greene, a pioneer in desert landscape architecture in Tucson, founded the University of Arizona‚Äôs landscape architecture program. Which modernist landscape architect shaped your region?

Many modern landscapes remain in all 50 states, but they may be unnoticed, their significance unappreciated. People from every state are hereby challenged to complete at least one HALS short format history to document these rapidly vanishing and often overlooked resources. Preservation Through Documentation!

Short format histories* should be submitted to HALS at the National Park Service no later than July 31, 2015. For more information, contact Chris Stevens, 202-354-2146, Chris_Stevens@nps.gov

Cash prizes** will be awarded to the top 3 entries. See next page for tips.
