Odyssey: The Olmsteds and Baltimore's Landscape Heritage

Renowned for his work on NYC's Central Park and Prospect Park, Frederick Law Olmsted Sr., in tandem with his sons, had a decisive impact on the shape and character of Baltimore's landscapes, helping establish the park designs and residential patterns that mark the area's topography to this day. This course explores the accomplishments and legacy of Frederick Law Olmsted Sr., who worked on several Baltimore-area projects, and the even more extensive involvement of his son, Frederick Law Olmsted Jr., whose work included the 1904 and 1926 comprehensive plans for Baltimore parks as well as specific designs for such parks as Carroll, Clifton, Druid Hill, and Latrobe, and for the residential communities of Roland Park, Guilford, Homeland, and others.
