Digging Deeper: The Arnold Arboretum by Design

Digging Deeper: The Arnold Arboretum by Design

Sat, Sep 24, 2022
4:00 PM- 6:00 PM

The Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University exists by design. As a freely accessible, public landscape in the heart of Boston, this 280-acre natural preserve was set aside from development for a thousand years through the careful negotiations between Frederick Law Olmsted, Charles Sprague Sargent, and the Parks department in 1872. This tour will describe the newest landscape projects at the Arnold, from elevated boardwalks to refined entrances, and how each project is predicated on a history of great design in the public realm. We will discuss historic and present plans that ensure future access to one of the most renowned living collections in the world.
