A Glimpse Of The Past Through The Landscape Architect Collection - "What artist so noble ... as he who, with far-reaching conception of beauty, in designing power, sketches the outlines, writes the colors, and directs the shadows of a picture so great that Nature shall be employed upon it for generations, before the work he arranged for her shall realize his intentions." Frederick Law Olmsted championed the City Beautiful movement and is acknowledged as the founder of American landscape architecture. When he was appointed Superintendent of Central Park, NY, he collaborated with Calvert Vaux and their design, "Greensward," was selected as the winning plan. He went on to design many large projects including "Prospect Park," Chicago's "Riverside" subdivision, Buffalo's park system, and the "Niagara Reservation at Niagara Falls." One of his last projects was the "1893 World's Fair" in Chicago. Implicit in all his designs was the sense of the art involved with planning or changing the natural scenery of a place for the desired purpose or effect. Success in this endeavor is that the observer feels that the end product is "just the way it ought to be." Today's landscape architects have the same challenge to make the site as important as the physical structures.
