Happy (pre) Birthday Frederick Law Olmsted! Tomorrow (April 26) marks what would have been the father of landscape architecture’s 192nd birthday. Although landscape architecture has come a long way in evolving beyond his pastoral and picturesque styles, Olmsted’s lasting legacy is still influential to our field. Our Filmtastic Friday this week features his best known work, Central Park, captured in a gorgeous fall time-lapse.
From the description:
“One of the most striking things about New York City is the fall colors and there’s no better place to view this then Central Park. I chose 15 locations in the park and revisited them 2 days a week for six months, recording all camera positions and lens information to create consistency in the images. All shots were taken just after sunrise.”
