Good news! Created in 2007, Frederick Law Olmsted: The Father of Landscape Architecture video by ASLA Southern California Chapter is now online!

Based on Don Marquardt’s popular live state presentation of Frederick Law Olmsted’s life and accomplishments, this 37-minute video concentrates on Olmsted’s early life influences, many failures trying to find a successful career, and then his providential partnering with architect Clavert Vaux and their wonderful creation of New York City’s Central Park. This fascinating and frustrating project not only created one of the most popular parks in the world, but finally launched Olmsted’s glorious career-which he and Vaux named Landscape Architecture.
