Thoughts on Landscape Planning and Design for Fort Worth, presented by Laurie Olin followed by a discussion with Mayor Parker.

Cities have included a variety of public open space for various purposes since antiquity. Today in the 21st cities continue to need a variety of public open spaces despite the vast changes of scale and nature of cities and culture. This talk will briefly review their historic nature and discuss the contemporary situation, not the least of which is global climate change, faced by America’s growing cities today, including Fort Worth.
