CCLP Honored for Landscape Preservation Project in California Cultural Landscape Report earns Preservation Design Award 8/27/2018SHARE:
ESF's Center for Cultural Landscape Preservation (CCLP) has been honored for its work on a landscape preservation project at Golden Gate National Recreation Area in California.
The project - the Cultural Landscape Report for Forts Baker, Barry and Cronkhite - will be presented with the prestigious Preservation Design Award for Cultural Resource Studies at the 2018 California Preservation Awards. The California Preservation Awards showcase the best in historic preservation, recognizing significant achievements in architecture, history, design and engineering. The Cultural Landscape Reports are an example of this, and an important contribution to the preservation of California's rich and diverse historic resources.
John Auwaerter, co-director of the CCLP, led the preparation of a Cultural Landscape Report to guide the National Park Service and its partners in ongoing efforts to interpret, preserve and enhance the historic cultural landscape of three former Army installations on more than 2,700 acres at the Marin Headlands across the Golden Gate from San Francisco. The project was a collaborative effort among park staff; the NPS Olmsted Center for Landscape Preservation; George W. Curry ESF Distinguished Teaching Professor Emeritus and co-director of the CCLP; and students in the ESF Department of Landscape Architecture. The two-volume report can be found on the CCLP website here and here.
Award recipients are selected by a jury of top professionals in the fields of architecture, engineering, planning and history, as well as renowned architecture critics and journalists. In making their decision, the jury stated: "This is a model cultural landscape report. Focusing on the Cold War period was a smart move, and the signage was simple and appropriate. This report is a great educational tool. Terrific!"
The Award will be presented Oct. 19 at a gala dinner and awards ceremony at Millennium Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles.
