100 LARCH Celebratory Exhibits

October 8, 2015 - 4:00pm

In celebration of 100 years of Landscape Architecture at The Ohio State University, the Knowlton School hosted a number of exhibitions that document the history of the section and its impact on the profession of Landscape Architecture. The exhibitions includes a timeline hung along the ramps, a display of contemporary student work, and a temporary garden beneath the oculus in the East Patio. These exhibits will be on display through the remainder of the 2015-16 academic year.


Ten large banners, each representing a decade of the program's history, were hung in public spaces throughout Knowlton Hall. The banners graphically illustrate the history of landscape architecture at Ohio State and the program's effect on and influential position within the development of the discipline. In addition to a 100 year program timeline, the banners each focus on a particular aspect of the program, its faculty and students. Banners represent detailed information about faculty leadership of the landscape architecture program; present examples of student work from the past 100 years; display information about total degrees conferred during the program's history and the evolution of the kinds of degrees offered in landscape architecture at Ohio State over the past century; include statistical displays on the historical makeup of the students who have been a part of the program, including where they practiced after graduation; examine the shifting themes that have been the focus of contemporary landscape architecture design studio; graphically represent the many homes landscape architecture has had at Ohio State, both physically and adminstratively.


Picking up where the Banvard Gallery exhibit, Landscape By Hand left off, curated student projects from 2000-2015 are on display on first floor walls outside of the Gallery and in the Center Space. Work presented spans the undergraduate and graduate landscape architecture curriculum and includes a portion of the Bigger Darby studio project which was a previous Banvard Gallery exhibit and, in 2014, won an ASLA Student Honor Award.


The Knowlton Hall East Patio hosted a temporary garden exhibit designed by Landscape Architecture Associate Professor of Practice Jason Kentner. Trees included in the garden will eventually be planted on the Ohio State campus.
