Frederick Law OlmstedA philosophy of design

“Service must precede art.” Frederick Law Olmsted devoted himself to landscape architecture in 1865 with a focus on serving human needs. Honoring “Dame Nature’s unconscious influence,” he designs her natural spaces, horticulture, rocks, and water elements — even bridges — to create cohesive visuals that calm the mind. His method of contrasting dark foreground forms with lighter, less defined ones in the distance is displayed in New York’s Central Park, Biltmore Estate in NC, and Franklin Park in Boston among many others.
