We are pleased to announce the forthcoming release of Landscape Observatory: The Work of Terence Harkness, a much-anticipated book profiling the career of our distinguished colleague.
Edited by M. Elen Deming and to be published this Fall by ORO Editions, the volume features contributions by Molly C. Briggs, Brenda Brown, Frank Clements, M. Elen Deming, Kathleen Harleman, Doug Johnston, Ken McCown, Robert B. Riley, Amita Sinha, and James Wescoat.
"The modernist history of landscape architecture is deeply marbled with veins of regional and phenomenological sensibility. Master designer Terence G. Harkness reflects this sensibility in every region he inhabits – whether the foothills of northern California, the high plains of North Dakota, or the lost prairies of east central Illinois. The long arc of his eco-revelatory work and teaching is brought to light by this presentation of Harkness’s most significant works, drawings, plans, models, and photographs. Contributors to the book chronicle Terry’s development and values and position him within the currents of contemporary landscape discourse. The book examines Harkness’s place-based pedagogy and his role as a design mentor and model."
