Chicago’s Marshall Field Store, Manhattan’s Central Park, Boston’s Trinity Church, and Brooklyn’s Prospect Park: We owe all these quintessential American places to two geniuses of post-Civil War America, the architect Henry Hobson Richardson and landscape designer Frederick Law Olmsted. At Chicago Humanities Festival, join Hugh Howard, the author of the dual biography Architects of an American Landscape, for a talk about how these friends and collaborators married nature and the built environment as they reimagined America’s public and private spaces.

This program is generously underwritten by the Richard H. Driehaus Foundation.
