New “Discovering Chestnut Hill” Lecture
The Wissahickon Style of Landscape with Carol Franklin
November 18th, 7pm Zoom
Explore the borrowed landscapes of Northwest Philadelphia with nationally recognized landscape architect Carol Franklin. Drawing from themes in Metropolitan Paradise: The Struggle for Nature in the City, the book about the Wissahickon Valley, which she co-authored with David Contosta, this illustrated virtual talk will elaborate on the essential connections between the natural and cultural landscapes so exquisitely manifested in the historical development of Chestnut Hill and Mount Airy, converging as a distinct “Wissahickon Style.”
Carol Franklin, FASLA, is a pioneer in the field of ecological design, co-founder of Andropogon Associates, and long-time Chestnut Hill resident.
