M. Paul Friedberg, one of the celebrated landscape architects who introduced Modernism to the design of outdoor space, will discuss how he turned sometimes limited public spaces into places of activity and community. Establishing his practice in 1958, he pioneered in the design of innovative plazas, main-street malls, and playgrounds. Born in New York and educated at Cornell, he founded the urban landscape architecture program at City College. His contributions have earned him the ASLA Medal, the highest honor of the American Society of Landscape Architects.
