Landslide Recognizes HH Richardson Grounds

Landslide,
established in 2002,
examines threatened landscapes and is designed to educate the public about and
rally support for these sites.

This week,
they turned their sites on the H. H. Richardson Complex

Dedicated to
increasing the public’s awareness of the important legacy of cultural
landscapes and the need to help save them for future generations, the Cultural
Landscape Foundation (TCLF), established in 1998, is the only not-for-profit
foundation of its kind in America.

Though it’s
not clear whether Buffalo has made its tour roster, previous sites highlighted
by Landslide
have
brought traveling exhibitions organized in cooperation with, and curated by,
George Eastman House International Museum of Photography and Film, which
commissioned original photography of the endangered places. 

Landslide
has focused on the grounds of the complex; for a more up-to-date article about
the buildings, see this Preservation Nation article by Tricia McCarter-Joseph. http://www.preservationnation.org/magazine/2009/todays-news/neglected-buffalo-asylum.html

The sixteen
present 2009
Landslide
sites,
culled from nearly 100 nominations,
feature the work of master landscape architects Frederick Law Olmsted, Beatrix
Farrand, George Kessler and Hideo Sasaki, along with architects I.M. Pei and
H.H. Richardson.

Sometimes the authors at Buffalo Rising work on collaborative efforts in order to cover various events and stories. These posts can not be attributed to one single author, as it is a combined effort. Often times a formation of a post gets started by one writer and passed along to one or more writers before completion. At times there are author attributions at the end of one of these posts. Other times, “Buffalo Rising” is simply offered up as the creator of the article. In either case, the writing is original to Buffalo Rising.
