  • Letter from the Chair of Landscape Architecture | PennDesign
    Landscape Architecture For over 50 years Penn has been the world s leading school of landscape architecture Previous Chairs Ian McHarg Anne Whiston Spirn John Dixon Hunt and James Corner have all radically expanded and refined landscape architecture s intellectual creative and professional scope Penn s alumni have fanned out across the globe and are leaders in the field This legacy has been instrumental in positioning landscape architecture globally as a profession on the ascendancy a profession that is now central to negotiating some of the 21st century s greatest challenges These challenges range from designing urban places that edify the human spirit to planning large scale territories that productively interweave ecological and infrastructural systems To be able to work effectively in this expansive field landscape architects require wide ranging creative and critical intelligence They require historical knowledge and depth They require technical precision and compelling representational skills Above all they require initiative and inspiration Because of its legacy because of its exceptional faculty and because of its genuine devotion to one on one studio based teaching Penn is able to offer an elite group of students these very qualities As you will see in the work of our current

    also profited In 1965 a large grant from the Ford Foundation enabled McHarg to found a new Regional Planning program and to assemble a faculty in natural sciences meteorology geology soils science ecology and computer science In the early 1970s a grant from the National Institute of Mental Health permitted McHarg to add several anthropologists to the faculty and to integrate social sciences into the curriculum The integration of research and practice in community service has been a long standing tradition in the department from the 1970s when faculty and students produced an environmental plan for the town of Medford New Jersey and the Landscape Architecture Master Plan for the Penn campus While enrollment in landscape architecture remained stable during the 1970s with only modest increase enrollment in the regional planning program soared and shaped faculty tenure appointments all three tenure appointments from the late 70s to early 80s were natural and social scientists By 1985 however with changes in governmental policies and reduced funding for environmental programs the enrollment in regional planning collapsed to 2 3 students per year Meanwhile landscape architects on the faculty with the exception of Ian McHarg had reduced their teaching commitment to half time or less Yet the department has served as a laboratory and launching pad for new professional practices nationally prominent firms include WMRT now WRT and Collins DuTot now Delta Group in the 1960s Hanna Olin now the Olin Partnership in the 1970s Andropogon Associates in the 1970s and Coe Lee Robinson now CLRdesign inc in the 1980s In 1986 Anne Whiston Spirn was recruited to succeed McHarg as chair with the mandate of extending the department s legacy and renewing its commitment to landscape design and theory The task of the next eight years was to reshape the full time faculty in order to teach landscape architects now the vast majority of students in the department and to rebuild the regional planning program in collaboration with the Department of City and Regional Planning In the 1980s and 90s the department s tradition of community service has continued with the West Philadelphia Landscape Plan and Greening Project that has engaged faculty and students with neighborhood residents in planning and with the design and construction of local landscape improvements The 1990s was a period of growing deficits and shrinking financial resources in universities throughout the nation Penn s Graduate School of Fine Arts was no exception Despite these constraints the Department has continued to respond to the needs of landscape architecture education and practice Indeed since the late 1960s a central idea sustaining the curriculum has been process process in terms of design ecology and social ideas especially as these relate to the needs of the profession The addition over the past ten years of humanist and artistic perspectives to natural and social scientific emphases culminated in a major revision of the curriculum during 1993 94 In 1994 John Dixon Hunt was appointed professor and chair of the Department He continued the
