The Landscape Architecture Legacy of Dan Kiley
Posted Friday, February 3

Explore the current state of more than two dozen works of one of the most influential modernist landscape architects of the 20th century. This exhibition features 45 photographs of 27 of Dan Kileys more than 1,000 projects. The Landscape Architecture Legacy of Dan Kiley is on display at The Branch Museum of Architecture and Design, January 19 - March 31, 2017.

’’Kiley was a post-World War II modernist landscape architect who often worked with such architects as Eero Saarinen, Louis Kahn and I. M. Pei to create internationally acclaimed design icons,’’ says The Branch Museum Director Dr. Craig Reynolds. ’’His look was recognizable for its geometric influence. The Cultural Landscape Foundation created the exhibition to honor Kiley and his legacy and call attention to the need for continued stewardship of his work.’’

The Landscape Architecture Legacy of Dan Kiley is a creation of The Cultural Landscape Foundation and was co-curated by Charles A. Birnbaum, Amanda Shull and Nord Wennerstrom.

The Branch Museum of Architecture and Design is located at 2501 Monument Avenue in Richmond, Virginia’s historic Fan District. Learn more.
