The Landscape Architecture Legacy of Dan Kiley

The Landscape Architecture Legacy of Dan Kiley

Presented by Indiana Landmarks at Central Library

One of the nation’s most important Post War landscape architects Dan Kiley’s prolific career spanned more than half a century. He worked with equally significant architects, including Eero Saarinen, Louis Kahn and I.M. Pei, to create internationally acknowledged Modernist design icons. A traveling photo exhibit created by the Cultural Landscape Foundation honors Kiley and his legacy, and calls attention to the need for informed and effective stewardship of his work — and by extension Modernist landscape design. The exhibition which opened at the Boston Architectural College on November 14, 2013 and appeared at the National Building Museum in Washington, DC from February 8 to May 18, 2014. From Washington, the exhibit travels to Indiana, where it will appear in Indianapolis, Columbus, and Fort Wayne. The exhibition features 45 newly commissioned photographs of 27 of Kiley’s more than 1,000 designs including the Miller House and Garden in Columbus and Concordia Theological Seminary in Fort Wayne. An online guide includes images from the exhibition, brief site descriptions, site plans and excerpts from recently collected personal recollections from colleagues. The exhibit is presented by Indiana Modern – an affinity group of Indiana Landmarks – in cooperation with the Cultural Landscape Foundation and local partners: Indianapolis May 29-June 25 Indianapolis Central Library, South Display Hall 40 E.
