Dan Kiley (1912-2004) was one of the nation’s most important post-war landscape architects. During his prolific career, which spanned more than half a century, he worked with equally significant architects, including Eero Saarinen, Louis Kahn and I.M. Pei, to create internationally acknowledged Modernist design icons. Kiley's legacy is substantial, influential and, like the broad swath of our Modernist designed landscape legacy, ephemeral. To honor Kiley and his legacy, and call attention to the need for informed and effective stewardship of his work (and by extension Modernist landscape design) we present this exhibition, organized by The Cultural Landscape Foundation (TCLF). 

The exhibition features 45 newly commissioned photographs of 27 of Kiley’s more than 1,000 designs including: the Miller House and Garden, Columbus, IN; the Art Institute of Chicago South Garden, Chicago, IL; and one of his final residential projects, Patterns, a garden for Gov. & Mrs. Pierre S. “Pete” du Pont IV in Delaware. A more in-depth treatment of Kiley’s life and legacy is available on TCLF’s website.
