Abstract:

Daniel Urban Kiley is generally considered to be America's foremost postwar landscape architect. Yet the work from the first two decades of his career is little known, despite both its inherent interest and its importance as a testing ground for his better-known later work. This book focuses on Kiley's most provocative and creative projects from 1940-60. It reproduces many drawings, including plans for his U.S. Air Force Academy and Independence Mail projects.

Four landscape architecture professors, the archivist of the Kiley collection, and a practicing landscape architect here present analytical investigations of Kiley's rarely studied early housing projects and garden prototypes, his garden plans for the Hollin Hills subdivision in suburban Washington, and, in new ways, his best-known work, the Irwin Miller Garden.
