Ferruccio Vitale, Landscape Architect of the Country Place Era, details the work of an Italian immigrant to the United States at the turn of the 20th century who managed to make a comfortable living by designing elegant landscapes for wealthy Americans. The book, published last fall, was written by American architect and critic R. Terry Schnadelbach. Vitale was born to an upper class Florentine family in 1875. His father was an architect and his mother's family had links to the design of the world's first botanical garden, at Padua, in the 16th century. After a promising start as a military officer, Vitale found a new calling in the new discipline of landscape architecture. He emig ...

The life and career of Edward G. Lawson is a story of highs and lows, a story of good fortune, and by contrast, barred opportunities. Lawson was Americas first true scholar and historian in landscape architecture. He was Cornell Universitys first Masters degree graduate in landscape architecture, won the first Rome Prize in Landscape Architecture from the American Academy in Rome (AAR), and assisted in developing the Academy’s Rome program, building its library collection on Renaissance Italian landscape architecture.

Ferruccio Vitale, Landscape Architect and Planner of the Century of Progress, Chicago, 1933 R. Terry Schnadelbach, FAAR

Conceived in the best of times, executed in the worst of times, Chicago’s Century of Progress Exposition, 1933-1934, was highly criticized, but none-the-less a phenomenal success. First proposed in 1928 to celebrate Chicago’s centennial, the new exposition was meant to return Chicago to fair fame after a succession of dull Beaux Arts expositions in San Francisco, St. Louis, and Philadelphia. The 1933 Chicago exposition was to be financed by the continuation of the 20’s boom years of industry and stock market gains, but the national economic crash of 1929 stopped. That such an event could happen, the fact that even the idea could survive, let alone be planned, financed and built duri ...
Frederick Law Olmsted, 1822 - 1903: Creator of the Profession of Landscape Architecture R. Terry Schnadelbach, FAAR

While there had been significant landscape achievements in America prior to 1850, none were as great as the creation, planning and building of Central Park in New York City. Social reformers William Cullen Bryant and the Reverend Henry W. Bellows were outspoken advocates for public open space in New York City. A “Central Park” was their vision; a space accessible to all citizens that should be, they said, larger than anything in Europe. One cannot say the name Central Park without recalling its creator and advocate, Frederick Law Olmsted, Sr. He was the social reformer who gave physical form to a new form of urban environments.
