Dan Kiley (1912-2004) was one of the most important and visionary Modernist landscape architects, acclaimed for more than 1,000 designs worldwide.  The Cultural Landscape Foundation has organized a retrospective of Dan Kiley’s life and prolific body of work, and a special edition of the annual Landslide© compendium.

Kiley worked with architects Eero Saarinen, Louis Kahn and I.M. Pei, among others, to create internationally acknowledged design icons. TCLF has created a web site and organized a traveling photographic exhibition featuring 27 Kiley-designed landscapes (the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC, is included in the Web version, but not the exhibition), and published a companion gallery guide.
