Book Synopsis
The Florentine bourn Ferruccio Vitale spent his adult life in pursuit of a new landscape architectural practice and its aesthetics. One by one, he created a new artistic language, expanded the profession’s client base, supported alternative educational programs, founded institutions of excellence and reflected America in its art. Vitale’s design theory was based on Rationale design, a formal composition using: point, line, plane, solid, void, light, shadow, and then secondarily elements of tone, shade, color, texture, pattern. In achieving this opposition of Olmsted, Vitale garnered support from like-minded colleagues, allied design professionals and faculty in many of America’s leaning institutions of higher education. His example was passed to others – partners, collaborators and allied artist – through succession and linear linkages. Together these like-minded professionals form the Vitale School of Landscape Architecture.
