Stop by to view a sampling of highlights from our Landscape Architecture collections, including: Dick Bell ’s design iterations and renderings for the Brickyard; Lewis Clarke’s studies for his 1965 downtown capital plan; and Lewis Clarke ’s careful precedent studies, design iterations, and funky renderings for the Fayetteville Street Mall. Other materials on display will include correspondence between faculty member  Gil Thurlow and other leaders in Landscape Architecture such as Garrett Eckbo and Roberto Burle Marx; Bill Flournoy ’s master’s thesis ; modernist design at the Tallywood shopping center in Fayetteville; and recently acquired, detailed 1930s residential planting plans from High Point landscape architect R. D. Tillson.  The show and tell is free and open to the public.  We hope to see you there!
