Nature By Design: Drawings of the Foundation for Architecture and Landscape Architecture

The Foundation for Architecture and Landscape Architecture was an innovative summer program of advanced training for graduates in those disciplines at Midwestern universities.

Launched in 1926 by members of the Lake Forest Garden Club and renowned landscape architect Ferruccio Vitale, the Foundation took advantage of Lake Forest’s reputation as a locus for country place design. This exhibit was displayed in our museum galleries in 2010.
