Public Exhibition at the UO in Portland: The Mirror and the Frame - John Yeon and the Landscape Art of China and Japan
The buildings of the self-trained Portland architect and landscape conservationist John Yeon (1910-1994) are known for their close affinity with their natural surroundings. To mark the centenary of his birth this exhibition examines parallels between techniques used to integrate buildings and landscapes in Yeon’s work and the traditional Chinese and Japanese art he collected throughout his career.
Alumni duo wins honors in landscape preservation challenge - Enchanted Forest now part of Historic American Landscapes Survey
EUGENE, Ore. -- (Nov. 12, 2010) -- Seventeen years ago, a class project by landscape architecture students laid the groundwork for award-winning work in 2010. Two alumni received second place honors in the Historic American Landscapes Survey (HALS) Theme Park Challenge for Oregon’s Enchanted Forest.
A multidisciplinary team made up of students from the departments of architecture, landscape architecture, and planning, public policy and management won two 2010 merit awards from the American Society of Landscape Architects – Oregon chapter. Both projects addressed two 300+ acre sites. The first is a concept vision plan for the future development of Lane Community College (LCC), located in Eugene, Oregon. The second is a new town plan for a section of Damascus, Oregon. Both projects used a participatory planning process throughout the design effort.
