A group exhibition of Landscape Architecture at the Schindler House
Co-curated by Mia Lehrer and Priscilla Fraser
California’s drought is a domestic challenge, to be taken on at the level of each front and back yard throughout the state’s neighborhoods, subdivisions, and cul-de-sacs. LUSH, the exhibition, began as an invitational charrette project that uses the MAK Center’s Fitzpatrick-Leland House (R.M. Schindler, 1936) in Laurel Canyon to ask leading landscape architects across Los Angeles to consider solutions both radical and practical.
LUSH was the inaugural show in a Summer Charrette Series which the MAK Center will host every year as an invited competition to develop an exhibition that examined the current state of residential design. R.M. Schindler defined the Californian residential garden with his 1922 indoor/outdoor design for the Kings Road House; this exhibition sought to redefine that landscape for the twenty-first century and beyond.
